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...

The effect of Boophilus microplus on steers was investigated using three levels of infestation during summer 1980, autumn-winter 1980 and summer 1981. Mean losses in liveweight per engorged female tick during each of the three periods were 0.72, 0.47 and 1.52 g per tick respectively. The 1980...

Abstract

The host resistance of Bos taurus (British) and B. indicus X B. taurus (Zebu X British) steers and heifers to cattle tick Boophilus microplus was measured monthly for 2.5 years in south-eastern Queensland. The cattle either grazed native pasture, with or without a supplement of lucerne pellets, or...

Abstract

Bos indicus-crossbred calves (groups of 180 and 124) exposed to natural Babesia bovis infection in wet and dry tropical environments in northern Queensland, Australia, were tested for antibodies using the indirect haemagglutination (IHA) test. There was evidence of maternal antibodies suggesting...
