Abstract

Avermectins and milbemycins belong to a family of compounds called macrocyclic lactones (ML) and are highly used as antiparasitic agents in the treatment of cattle for control of gastrointestinal nematodes, ticks and myiasis. In Brazil, there are five substances (ivermectin, abamectin, doramectin,...

Abstract

In the last 15 years, a series of experiments has been carried out to search for quantitative trait loci (QTL) in New Zealand cattle, sheep and deer. A QTL represents the position on a chromosome where there is a statistically significant genetic effect on a measured trait. This paper reviews data...

Abstract

Necropsy techniques for the digestive tract of ruminants used at the University of Utrecht are described. They differ from those used elsewhere in 3 respects: (1) the abomasum is opened immediately after slaughter and the "contents" are treated separately from the "washings"; (2) the first 10 m of...

Abstract

Storage of cattle faeces at room temperature resulted in a rapid decline in the numbers of Dictyocaulus viviparus larvae recoverable by the Baermann technique. Storage at 8 deg C, however, improved the recovery rate over the first 6 to 15 days and substantial recoveries were achieved after 35 to 55 ...

Abstract

After a day's storage of cattle faeces at 20-23 deg C the number of Dictyocaulus viviparus larvae recoverable by the Baermann technique quickly declined. In one of 2 experiments many of the larvae were recovered after the first day from the water condensed inside the plastic bag in which the faeces ...

Abstract

Post-mortem worm counts, plasma pepsinogen analyses and faecal egg counts as aids to the diagnosis of gastro-intestinal helminthiasis in sheep and cattle are briefly reviewed. Experiments showed a good correlation between individual egg and worm counts in young sheep (up to 12 months old) but not...
