Abstract

Several cases of bovine MASTITIS yielded cultures of Klebsiella type organisms. Testing for bovine TUBERCULOSIS was reduced, partly by the institution of biennial tests in areas where eradication is proceeding satisfactorily, and also because the dry season precluded handling cattle in poor...

Abstract

MASTITIS due to Bact. coli and Bact. aerogenes was reported. STAPHYLOCOCCAL MASTITIS is still a problem and does not respond well to streptomycin, streptomycin-penicillin, aureomycin or dibromopropamidine. TUBERCULOSIS appears to be more prevalent in beef cattle than was anticipated. The policy of...

Abnormally dry conditions caused disappearance of the BUFFALO FLY (Siphona exigua[Haematobia irritans exigua]) from extensive regions.

Abstract

Neither aureomycin nor furacin (5-nitro-2 furaldehyde semicarbazone) was effective against staphylococcal MASTITIS. The potassium salt of penicillin G was irritant and caused fibrin clots. Vaccination of sheep against CASEOUS LYMPHADENITIS reduced the incidence to about half that in controls. Sheep ...
