Abstract

A comparison of the symptomatology, haematology and prevalence of trypanosomiasis in 81 Holstein Friesian cattle (52 adults, 29 calves) and 20 White Zebu (all adults), exposed to natural infections on a ranch in a rain forest zone of Nigeria, is presented. 23 (44%) of the adult Friesians had...

Abstract

An outbreak of tsetse-transmitted trypanosomiasis in Bassa Local Government Area of Jos Plateau, Nigeria, is described. The outbreak was reported in September 1987 by the resident Fulani community. Tsetse flies had first been noticed 10 months previously. Among cattle herds, milk yield had halved...
