In trials lasting 28 days, groups of 10-12 tick-infested cattle were treated with moxidectin injection (0.2 mg/kg body weight), moxidectin pour-on (0.5 mg/kg) or remained untreated. In trials lasting 140 days, cattle were treated with moxidectin injection, moxidectin pour-on or deltamethrin-ethion...

A personal interview was conducted with each farmer and answers to 134 questions were ...

Abstract

In Queensland, Australia, 40 mid-lactation Holstein-Friesian cows, 100% lot fed, were assigned to 4 groups for 15 weeks. Two groups of 10 cows were infested each week with a gradually increasing number of B. microplus larvae, while the other 2 groups were maintained free of ticks. Milk yield and...

Abstract

Tick fever was first identified in Queensland in 1891, and various control measures have been introduced since then to control the spread of infection, including mineral oil dipping, arsenic dips and DDT. The state is now divided into designated areas either free from ticks, infected, provisionally ...

Abstract

49 purebred Bos indicus and 48 B. indicus × B. taurus (50%, F1 generation) 24-month-old steers were kept in the same paddock with cattle artificially infected with a virulent isolate of A. marginale and B. microplus. The cattle were seronegative for A. marginale at the start of the trial but had...

Abstract

For more than 100 years, 'tick fever' (Babesia bovis, B. bigemina and Anaplasma marginale) and B. microplus have caused tremendous financial loss to cattle producers around the world. Since Australia became infected with the disease and infested with its tick vector in the mid-19th century, a great ...

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...
