Abstract

The results are presented of a long-term study in Queensland in 1965-75 on the effectiveness and economic advantages of 2 methods of controlling ticks [Boophilus microplus (Can.)] and the pathogens they transmit (Babesia bovis and Anaplasma marginale) in Droughtmaster, a relatively tick-resistant...

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...

Abstract

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...

Abstract

Outbreaks caused by B. argentina, B. bigemina and A. marginale in Queensland between 1 July 1966 and 30 June 1976 were assessed. Of all outbreaks 73% were caused by B. argentina, 21% by A. marginale and 6% by B. bigemina. There is no evidence to indicate that the numbers of outbreaks have undergone ...

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...
