Abstract

The susceptibility to morantel of a strain of O. ostertagi after 9 years of continuous use of morantel tartrate by Paratect bolus at a Friesian cattle farm in Viglunda, Sweden, was investigated. This was compared with a local strain of O. ostertagi from a nearby farm where no anthelmintics had been ...

In five trials conducted in different regions of France during 1988, 15-21 calves given the morantel tartrate bolus were introduced to contaminated pasture plots as were similar numbers of control calves and, in two trials, similar numbers of calves given a levamisole bolus. Monthly faecal egg...

Abstract

An experiment was carried out to assess the effect of morantel tartrate in the faeces of calves treated with a bolus on the survival and development of O. ostertagi eggs. Since the drug delivered from the bolus greatly reduces the nematode population in an infected animal and thus the number of...
