Abstract

The effects of bi-monthly dipping with Promacyl [3-methyl-5-(1-methylethyl)phenyl methyl(1-oxobutyl)carbamate] and no dipping on tick (Boophilus microplus (Can.)) numbers and liveweight gain of young Bos indicus × B. taurus cattle grazing tick-infested improved pastures were compared in 3...

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

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

A project that began in Queensland 20 years earlier is described in which Sahiwal bulls are crossed with Holstein-Friesian cows in order to combine the resistance to Boophilus microplus (Can.) exhibited by the Sahiwal breed of cattle with the milk-production capacity of the Holstein-Friesians in...

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

Integrated control strategies for Boophilus microplus (Can.) on Zebu X British cattle in southern Queensland are explored using computer modelling. A brief description of the tick population is followed by an investigation of the effectiveness of host resistance as a basis for tick control. Since...

Abstract

In a discussion on the environmental limitations to dairy farming in Queensland, it is reported that external parasites of cattle, especially cattle tick [Boophilus microplus (Can.)] are the main impediments. Information, including breed characteristics, is provided on 7 breeds of cattle in...

Abstract

In a field test in Queensland in 1975-76, 22 first-cross Brahman X Hereford cattle about 1 year old were dipped at intervals of about 22 days in a preparation of promacyl [3-methyl-5-(1-methyl-ethyl)phenyl methyl(1-oxobutyl)carbamate] for the control of cattle ticks [Boophilus microplus (Can.)]....
