Abstract

Aims: This study investigated the occurrence and genetic diversity of Enterobacteriaceae with extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-, AmpC- and carbapenemase-mediated resistance in British beef cattle, and related risk factors. Methods and results: Faecal samples (n=776) were obtained from farms in...

Abstract

Estrus in dairy cattle varies in duration and intensity, highlighting the need for accurate and continuous monitoring to determine optimal breeding time. The objective of this study was to evaluate precision dairy monitoring technologies (PDMT) for detecting estrus. Estrus was synchronized in...

Abstract

Changes in locomotor activity of beef females during the 72 h prepartum were determined in 3 experiments: (i) a 2-yr study with spring-calving multiparous cows (Exp. 1; n=34 and 27 for years 1 and 2, respectively); (ii) spring-calving primiparous (first pregnancy; n=13) and multiparous (n=21) dams...

Abstract

A review of livestock and manure management across the UK was undertaken as part of a wider study of important factors impacting on greenhouse and other gaseous emissions from agriculture. All major livestock sectors were covered by the review, but only data on cattle manure are reported in this...

Abstract

Detecting the genera and species of gastrointestinal (GI) nematode infections in faecal samples obtained from cattle requires the incubation of faeces ('larval culture') followed by identification of the third-stage larvae that are harvested after 10-14 days. Substantial research in the development ...

Abstract

Feed efficiency in dairy cattle has gained much attention recently. Due to the cost-prohibitive measurement of individual feed intakes, combining data from multiple countries is often necessary to ensure an adequate reference population. It may then be essential to model genetic heterogeneity when...

AbstractFull Text

Livestock production is vital to the world economy. However, intensive animal production is known to require large inputs of raw materials and energy, whilst producing greater amounts and concentration of waste material than do the traditional methods of production. Although the wastes, in the form ...

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...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was the development of a strategy for the surveillance of bovine TB in Scotland that is based upon risk of at least one animal in a herd testing positive for disease. This would be an alternative to the current surveillance methods that include regular four year testing of all ...
