Abstract

Extracts prepared from the membranes of eggs (EM) and guts (GM) of B. microplus were used to immunize cattle, which were then infested twice with 20 000 larval ticks 1 week apart. EM antigens did not protect against challenge with ticks, despite high levels of anti-egg antibodies in the sera of the ...

Abstract

Gut membranes of the tick B. microplus were extracted using a low ionic strength buffer and the soluble antigens were used to vaccinate Hereford cattle. Following either experimental infestation with 40 000 larval ticks or exposure to field infestation (in Queensland, Australia), ticks from...

Abstract

F1 steers resulting from mating of Simmental or Hereford bulls to Brahman cows, or mating of Brahman bulls to Hereford cows, in 1981-83 were compared on a commercial beef property in central Queensland.

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...
