Two consecutive calf 'crops' consisting of 141 3/4 Brahman/1/4 shorthorn cattle (i.e. 29 steers and 40 heifers from 1981 and 30 steers and 42 heifers from 1982) were assessed for resistance to B. microplus in May, July and October 1983. Although the level of expressed resistance to artificial...

Abstract

The resistance to B. microplus of 4 herds of cattle with different Bos indicus (zebu) content (Hereford; 3/4 Hereford and 1/4 Brahman; 1/2 Hereford and 1/2 Brahman; and Brahman), grazed at each of 2 locations in the subtropics of Queensland was measured using artificial tick infestations at...

Abstract

The results are presented of 2 field trials in Queensland in 1978-80 in which cattle with low resistance to ticks [Boophilus microplus] (i.e. thse infested with many ticks) in Brahman-cross breeder groups (more than 65% Brahman content) were identified and culled. Removal of 16% of the cattle in a...

Abstract

Rectal and skin temperatures and resistance to Boophilus microplus (Can.) were studied in male calves of the Brahman (Zebu) breed, of Shorthorn × Hereford hybrids, and of hybrids of these crosses with Africander or Brahman cattle. In comparative artificial infestations of Hereford × Shorthorns (HS) ...

Abstract

The effect of a new synthetic pyrethroid, flumethrin, was evaluated on larval stages of the cattle tick B. microplus in vitro and against all stages in vivo, by spraying or plunge-dipping infested cattle. Flumethrin was highly effective in reducing numbers of organophosphate susceptible or...

Abstract

Breeding in Queensland for resistance to Boophilus microplus (Can.) was undertaken in a herd of Australian Illawarra Shorthorn (AIS) cattle in 1961--78 and in a herd of Brahman X AIS cattle in 1970--79; breeder cows and their progeny were assessed for tick resistance in October--January. Resistance ...

Abstract

An extension programme for the control of Boophilus microplus (Can.) on cattle in south-eastern Queensland is described that was developed in response to problems caused by the potential failure of the traditional chemical control methods. Producers were surveyed to find out their opinions and...

Abstract

Females of Boophilus microplus on British breed steers were counted regularly from July 1971 until January 1974 at Mt Tamborine, a cool and moist habitat in south-east Queensland. Larval production was estimated by exposing engorged individuals in pasture at regular intervals. Three generations of...

Abstract

The results of a survey in Queensland in 1977-78 on the control of cattle tick [Boophilus microplus (Can.)] indicated that tick-resistant cattle had been introduced for their heat- and drought-tolerance and their ability to grow more rapidly than European cattle, especially in the extensive grazing ...
