Resistance to Boophilus microplus (Canestrini) in different breeds of cattle

Resistance to Boophilus microplus (Canestrini) in different breeds of cattle

Australian Journal of Agricultural Research 29(4): 885-895

Resistance to the cattle tick Boophilus microplus was assessed in heifer herds of various breeds of beef and dairy cattle in spring and summer in Queensland. All cattle had had tick experience before assessment. Resistance levels were determined as the percentage of larval ticks that failed to survive to maturity following infestations with about 20 000 larvae.
