AbstractFull Text

Puberty can be characterized by the time when the cattle first estrus. Estrus in cattle can be observed through the cytology of the vaginal epithelial (Vaginal smear). The vaginal wall cytology of Brahman cattle predicted at the onset of puberty was studied. Brahman cattles were developed by...

Abstract

Genetically engineered sheep and goats represent useful models applied to proof of concepts, large-scale production of novel products or processes, and improvement of animal traits, which is of interest in biomedicine, biopharma, and livestock. This disruptive biotechnology arose in the 80s by...

Abstract

The paper analyses the impact of a priori determinants of biosecurity behaviour of farmers in Great Britain. We use a dataset collected through a stratified telephone survey of 900 cattle and sheep farmers in Great Britain (400 in England and a further 250 in Wales and Scotland respectively) which...

Abstract

The mammalian oviduct has long been recognized as an organ essential for successful reproduction. Bovine, ovine, porcine, and equine animal models have offered clear advantages for oviduct study related to gamete physiology, fertilization, and early embryonic development. Livestock species are...

Abstract

A number of DNA marker applications aid genetic selection within subpopulations of New Zealand's livestock farming industries. Advances in genomic tools have opened the possibility of genotyping individuals for a large set of markers, enough to have a large proportion of the genome 'tagged' with at ...

Abstract

Information is given on how the population model, T3HOST, can be used as an aid to pest management in assessing the effects of host resistance, pasture spelling, game animals and strategic dipping on the numbers of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus infesting cattle in Africa. The cost effectiveness of...

Abstract

The basic structure and use of a general programme (TICK2) for modelling tick ecology and the epidemiology of tick-borne diseases is given. Its primary purpose is to serve as a framework in which to incorporate and test knowledge of the ecology of ticks and their livestock hosts. The model is...

Abstract

The basic concepts which affect the relationship between biting flies and their livestock hosts are discussed, particularly with regard to models based on injury thresholds and economic injury levels based on ecological parameters and population dynamics. Specific details of host-parasite...

Abstract

The author reviews methods of monitoring the epidemiology of tick-borne diseases in livestock in Africa, primarily from the perspective of a model maker. The following subjects are discussed: the incidence and prevalence of tick-borne diseases in host populations, the sampling methods used to...

Abstract

The author discusses the type of data required to model factors affecting the host-finding phase of ticks after moulting but prior to finding a host. Methods of interpreting data are given and there is a short review of field-data available for Rhipicephalus appendiculatus, Amblyomma variegatum, A. ...
