Abstract

Traditional methods for the diagnosis of parasitic helminth infections of livestock have a number of limitations, such as the inability to distinguish mixed-species infections, a heavy reliance on technical experience and also sub-sampling errors. Some of these limitations may be overcome through...

AbstractFull Text

Nitroxynil is an anthelmintic mainly used for the control of liver fluke in sheep and cattle. Nitroxynil is not permitted for use during an animal's lactation period however concerns regarding the treatment of dairy cows at any time with anthelmintic products have been raised. Maximum residue...

Abstract

In the last 15 years, a series of experiments has been carried out to search for quantitative trait loci (QTL) in New Zealand cattle, sheep and deer. A QTL represents the position on a chromosome where there is a statistically significant genetic effect on a measured trait. This paper reviews data...

Abstract

Post-mortem worm counts, plasma pepsinogen analyses and faecal egg counts as aids to the diagnosis of gastro-intestinal helminthiasis in sheep and cattle are briefly reviewed. Experiments showed a good correlation between individual egg and worm counts in young sheep (up to 12 months old) but not...

Abstract

Deficiencies in current methods of interpreting faecal egg counts are discussed and a new approach which is simpler and more objective is described. The likely strongyle worm count profile of a flock can be provided by the collection of numerically adequate and fully representative samples;...

Abstract

Experimental infections of sheep showed that Haemonchus contortus caused increased levels of pepsinogen. The increase occurred earlier than in Ostertagia circumcincta infections. Experiments with naturally infected sheep have shown a direct relationship between the number of worms in the abomasum...

Abstract

The author discusses, in general terms, the use of radioisotopes in studies on plasma protein metabolism, loss of plasma macromolecules into the gastro-intestinal tract and anaemia in parasitized animals. Such techniques are proving very valuable in determining the ways in which parasites cause...

Abstract

This paper is of interest inasmuch as the methods that have been employed for the eradication of the gross animal parasites in the United States are briefly reviewed and the possibilities of further success based on our present knowledge of the life histories of the parasites are discussed. The...
