Abstract

Ten Droughtmaster and 9 Hereford cattle were born in an enzootic babesiosis area of Queensland and became naturally infected with Babesia bovis (argentina) and B. bigemina during a period of 3 years. They were then kept free of cattle ticks (Boophilus microplus (Can.)) for the remainder of an...

Abstract

Natural infection of calves with Anaplasma marginale was studied in 2 endemic areas of tropical northern Queensland. Infection, which was assessed by a micro-complement fixation test, occurred throughout the year but was most frequent just after the summer wet season. Up to 90.6% of cross-bred Bos...

Outbreaks of Babesia argentina, B. bigemina and Anaplasma marginale on cattle in Queensland are analysed for the period from 1966 to 1976. The 3 pathogens were responsible for 73, 6 and 21% of the outbreaks, respectively, and there was no evidence for any change in the proportion in the past 10-15...
