Abstract

In this article, we review the epidemiology of East Coast fever (ECF), a tick borne infection of cattle, in Kenya. The major factors associated with epidemiology of ECF include the agro-ecological zone (AEZ), livestock production system (LPS) and both animal breed and age. These factors appear to...

Abstract

One ml of a mild Theileria parva isolate was inoculated sc into each of 23 Friesian cattle, anterior to the left prescapular lymph node. The cattle developed low macroschizont parasitoses but no clinical reactions were observed. On day 35 pi, 22 of the 23 cattle were divided into 5 groups and...

Abstract

Three experiments were undertaken to determine the efficacy of different doses of buparvaquone in the infection and treatment immunization of cattle against T. parva derived from African buffalo. Two of these experiments also compared buparvaquone with standard doses of long- and short-acting...

Abstract

A pilot scheme to introduce immunization against theileriosis in cattle was undertaken on the Marula Ranch, Nakuru, Kenya. The acaricide control was unconventional, in that spraying was totally removed. The known tick-borne disease problems on this farm were: Corridor disease, caused by Theileria...

Abstract

The cost of immunizing cattle against East Coast fever by the infection and treatment method has been calculated for a pilot scheme in Kaloleni Division of the Coast Province of Kenya using a spreadsheet model. The cost was calculated to be 544 sh ($25) per animal (in 1990 values). If a farmer were ...
