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 ...

Abstract

During a survey on cattle tick control carried out in Queensland in 1977-78, investigations were made into chemical control employed by producers. The frequency of dipping and its correlation with region, property size and type, breed and age of cattle were noted, together with the dipping schedule ...

Abstract

In a field test in northern Queensland in 1975-77 on 120 Bos indicus cross heifers, the average daily gain in weight was 0.306 kg in animals that were dipped every 3 weeks for the control of cattle tick [Boophilus microplus (Can.)], as compared with 0.273 kg for undipped cattle. The numbers of...

Abstract

The authors report those findings concerning property management from a survey of tick control on cattle in Queensland in 1977-78 that could affect efficient tick control, and also present a profile of the cattle industry in the infested areas. The survey was concerned mainly with Boophilus...

Abstract

Strategic dipping and pasture spelling plus dipping were compared in Queensland with no treatment on Droughtmaster cows and their progeny over 5 years. Average monthly counts of Boophilus microplus (Can.) on the young cattle and their dams were 10 and 18, <1 and 2, and 56 and 112, for the 3 treatments, respectively. There was stable transmission of Babesia bovis, B. bigemina and Anaplasma marginale to the progeny from the untreated cows. Strategic dipping, and pasture spelling plus dipping, seriously disrupted the transmission of B. bovis, and vaccination against this parasite is recommended. Pasture spelling plus dipping also interfered with the transmission of A. marginale and B. bigemina, but vaccination against A. marginale only is warranted. At 27-29 months of age, the young cattle in the strategic dipping group had...
