AbstractFull Text

Gastrointestinal helminthosis in ruminants cause considerable economic losses, with marked impairment of productivity of these animals, especially in poor management systems and poor parasite control programs. Infections caused by these helminths represent an obstacle to the expansion of the sheep...

Abstract

The use of silvopastoral systems (SPS) can be a good alternative to reduce the environmental impacts of livestock breeding in Brazil. Despite the advantages offered by public policies, many producers hesitate to use this system. One of the reasons is the lack of information on health and...

AbstractFull Text

In Andradina, São Paulo state, the degree of resistance against endo- and ectoparasites was evaluated in heifers from three genetic groups: crossbred Nellore x Aberdeen Angus (Nel x AAn; n=12), Guzerá (Guz; n=22) and Nellore (Nel; n=24). During 12 months, the body weight of each animal was recorded ...

Abstract

Next-generation deep amplicon sequencing, or metabarcoding, has revolutionized the study of microbial communities in humans, animals and the environment. However, such approaches have yet to be applied to parasitic helminth communities. We recently described the first example of such a method -...

Abstract

This study aimed to determine the occurrence of gastrointestinal and pulmonary parasites in calves and to evaluate seasonal and age patterns in parasitism. For this, we used 140 clinically healthy crossbreed calves (two to 12 months old) that belonged to two private farms in the municipalities of...

Abstract

To better evaluate the usefulness of female Haemonchus specimens for specific identification, we undertook a detailed analysis of the morphology of a collection of worms obtained from cattle and sheep in shared pastures. Based on the results, we also more precisely evaluated the host-specificity of ...

Abstract

The resistance to infestations by ectoparasites and infections by gastrointestinal nematodes was studied in 45 animals (males and females) of two genetic groups: purebred Nelore (NI, n=28) and Three-Cross (1/2 Angus+1/4 Canchim+1/4 Nelore - TC, n=17). The animals were monitored for 24 months,...

Abstract

Given the importance of nematode parasites in cattle herds, this study aimed to assess the parasitological status of dairy cattle from small producers in Votuporanga and Valentim Gentil, SP. During technical visits to 45 farms in the region, interviews and stool sample collections were performed....
