The impact of natural infestations of ticks in Zambia on the productivity of cattle and implications for tick control strategies in central Africa



The impact of natural infestations of ticks in Zambia on the productivity of cattle and implications for tick control strategies in central Africa



Parassitologia 32(1): 165-175



Studies were carried out at Lutale, Zambia, during 1982-88 to quantify the effects of tick control on traditionally managed Sanga cattle. The studies examined effects on liveweight gain (during 1982-86) and herd productivity (1985-88). In the studies on liveweight gain, 2 herds of 6- to 12-month-old cattle were divided into 2 groups each. One group in each herd was treated with an acaricide once weekly (amitraz for 18 months, then Barricade , while the other remained untreated.
