Abstract

The potential of faecal indicators for assessing organic matter digestibility (OMD) and organic matter intake (OMI) was studied in digestibility trials with young Creole bulls. The evaluated faecal indicators were CPf, NDFf, ADFf, residual nitrogen in ADF (NADFf) and in vitro DM digestibility...

Abstract

It is concluded that g.-pigs are suitable for assay provided they weigh about 500 g. each, are in good health, come from known breeding establishments and are kept under constant conditions of husbandry during experiments. A good immune response was elicited by i/m injection; antibody titres...

Abstract

A method for assessing the cross-vaccinating dose 50 (CVD50) in g.pigs is described. By this technique it is possible to differentiate variants, which it is not possible to do in a statistically significant manner by the qualitative test in cattle. It is possible to express, by coefficients, the...

Abstract

SWINE FEVER: a trial of the Chinese strain of lapinized virus showed that it was safe to use as a vaccine in Belgium. Antibodies to porcine picorna-virus (SMEDI virus) were found in at least 59 of 194 serum samples; their incidence did not seem to be related to abortion and sterility. A comparison...

Abstract

The method is based on the parallelism between the immune response to vaccines in guineapigs and in cattle. Vaccines were classed in two groups according to their protective index (C) for guineapigs: those whose protective index expressed as log. C, was higher than l.5 and those whose protective...
