Abstract

Dictyocaulus viviparus, Ostertagia ostertagi (nematode parasites), and Fasciola hepatica (trematode parasite) result in productivity losses on dairy farms and impact on animal health through clinical and sub-clinical disease. Parasite control in livestock systems is largely based on the use of...

Abstract

Development of an in vitro culture system for infectious Dictyocaulus viviparus larvae made it possible to study the potential cross-transmission of D. viviparus between white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) and domestic cattle. Between 26 September 1995 and 29 February 1996, 6 parasite-free...

Abstract

Two groups of 10 first-year grazing cattle were either left untreated as controls (group 1) or treated with eprinomectin (Eprinex; 500 µg/kg) as a pour-on application at turnout and 8 weeks later (group 2). All cattle were weighed before turnout, at 4, 6 and 8 weeks after turnout and at 4-week...
