Induction of bovine polioencephalomalacia with a feeding system based on molasses and urea. (1/4595)

Polioencephalomalacia (PEM), a disease first described in the United States and related to intensive beef production, appeared in Cuba coincident with the use of a new, molasses-urea-based diet to fatten bulls. Because the only experimental means so far of reproducing PEM has been with amprolium, a structural analog of thiamin, the present study attempted to induce the disease using the molasses-urea-based diet. Six Holstein bulls (200-300 kg) were studied during consumption of three successive diets: 1) commercial molasses-urea-restricted forage diet of Cuban feedlots, 2) a period in which forage was gradually withdrawn and 3) a forage-free diet composed only of molasses, urea and fish meal. PEM was reproduced in this way. At ten-day intervals, blood concentrations of glucose, lactate, pyruvate and urea were measured, as well as when clinical signs of PEM appeared. The signs, clinical course and lesions of the experimentally induced disease were comparable to those of field cases. The biochemical results suggested a block in pyruvate oxidation as in PEM elsewhere in the world. No evidence existed of urea intoxication. In addition, brain and liver concentration of total thiamin from field cases and normal animals were found to be similar.  (+info)

The indirect hemagglutination test for the detection of antibodies in cattle naturally infected mycoplasmas. (2/4595)

Stable mycoplasma antigens for the indirect hemagglutination test (IHA) were prepared employing glutaraldehyde treated sheep erythrocytes sensitized with Mycoplasma agalactiae subsp. bovis and Mycoplasma bovigenitalium antigens. Employing these antigens mycoplasma antibodies were detected in sera from cattle which had mastitic symptoms due to natural infection with either M. agalactiae subsp. bovis or M. bovigenitalium. A total of 200 cows from four herds were examined at varying intervals for the presence of M. agalactiae subsp. bovis and for the detection of antibody using growth inhibition and IHA tests. Mycoplasmas were isolated from 37 animals. Growth inhibiting antibody was detected from 56 of the 200 animals. In the IHA tests, antibody titer greater than or equal to 1:80 were detected in 148 animals, 76 of these having antibody titers greater than or equal to 1:160, while sera of 116 normal control animals had no growth inhibiting antibody and none had IHA antibody titers greater than 1:40. M. bovigenitalium was isolated from the milk of three of 26 animals in a fifth herd during an outbreak of mastitis. Growth inhibiting antibodies were demonstrated in the sera of ten of the 26 animals. However, the IHA test detected antibody titers of greater than or equal to 1:160 in 13 animals and of 1:80 in one of the 26 animals. To determine the specificity of the IHA tests, M. agalactiae subsp. bovis and M. bovigenitalium antigens were reacted with rabbit hyperimmune typing sera produced against 12 species of bovine mycoplasmatales. Homologous antisera showed IHA antibody titers of 1:1280 and 1:2560 against M. agalactiae subsp. bovis and M. bovigenitalium respectively, whereas heterologous antisera showed IHA antibody titers of less than or equal to 1:20. Also eight type-specific bovine antisera were reacted with M agalactiae subsp. bovis and M. bovigenitalium antigens in homologous and heterologous tests. Homoogous reactions showed IHA antibody titers greater than or equal to 1:320, whereas heterologous reactions showed IHA titers of less than or equal to 1:20. This IHA test promises to be useful for the detection of bovine mycoplasma antibodies in sera from cattle infected with M. agalactiae subsp. bovis or M. bovigenitalium. Thes test is sensitive, reproducible and specific and the technique is relatively simple and rapid. The antigens were stable for at least seven months.  (+info)

Experimental production of infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis: comparison of serological and immunological responses using pili fractions of Moraxella bovis. (3/4595)

The effect of vaccinating cattle and mice on the development of keratoconjunctivitis was studied. Cattle were vaccinated with whole cells, disrupted cells and pili fractions of three strains of Moraxella bovis. Mice were vaccinated with pili fractions of three strains. The resistance of all vaccinated animals was challenged with virulent cultures of M. bovis. In an attempt to correlate the response seen after vaccination and challenge with a pili fraction of M. bovis, vaccinated cattle and mice were grouped on the basis of signs of disease manifested and compared on the basis of serological responses. Serum samples were tested for antibodies by a gel diffusion precipitin test. A greater number of the sera of resistant cattle had antibodies to the homologous pili antigen than those of vaccinated nonresistant cattle. Cattle vaccinated with disrupted cells were not resistant to infectious bovine kerato-conjuctivitis and their sera lacked antibodies against the pili antigens. Vaccinated mice were more resistant to infectious bovine kerato-conjuctivitis and their sera lacked antibodies against the pili antigens. Vaccinated mice were more resistant to challenge exposure by homologous than heterologous cultures. A greater number of the sera of resistant mice had antibodies to pili antigens than nonresistant mice.  (+info)

Hypersensitivity pneumonitis: experimental production in calves with antigens of Micropolyspora faeni. (4/4595)

Pneumonitis was induced in calves by exposure to aerosols of Micropolyspora faeni with or without prior sensitization of the animals by subcutaneous injection of antigen. The pneumonitis primarily involved centrolobular areas and was characterized by alveolar septal thickening and loss of air space by cellular infiltration. Vasculitis and focal haemorrhage occurred in certain individuals and haemoproteinaceous exudate appeared within septa and alveolar lumina. The pneumonitis was compared with human farmer's lung, pneumonitis of housed cattle and other experimental hypersensitivity pneumonitides.  (+info)

Values of three coagulation screening tests of precolostral calves. (5/4595)

Prothrombin times, partial thromboplastin times and platelet counts were performed to determine normal values and to screen for coagulation defects of precolostral calves. The precolostral calves were in two groups: one group of a few calves was tested two years before the second larger group. The results for both groups were similar. The tests were performed on postcolostral calves and on mature cows to compare their values with those of precolostral calves. The mean values of prothrombin times and partial thromboplastin times of precolostral calves in the first group were 18.8 seconds and 54.8 seconds respectively. The mean values of prothrombin times and partial thromboplastin times of precolostral calves in the second group were 18.8 seconds and 50.8 seconds respectively. The mean platelet count was 422,400/cmm for the first group and 482,800/cmm for the second group.  (+info)

Treponema brennaborense sp. nov., a novel spirochaete isolated from a dairy cow suffering from digital dermatitis. (6/4595)

A novel Treponema species was isolated from an ulcerative lesion of a cow suffering from digital dermatitis (DD), a disease which causes painful ulcerations along the coronary band. Among other anaerobic bacteria, high numbers of spirochaetes have been regularly found in DD lesions. Here data are presented of a spirochaete isolated from a DD ulcer. By chemotaxonomy, protein analysis and comparative 16S rDNA sequence analysis this isolate was classified as a treponeme that differed from all Treponema species described previously. The only isolate, DD5/3T, for which the name Treponema brennaborense is proposed, is designated the type strain of the novel species. The strain is a small, highly motile spirochaete that has two periplasmic flagella, one flagellum being attached at each cell pole. Strain DD5/3T exhibits alpha-glucosidase and N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase activity and growth is inhibited by rabbit serum. T. brennaborense was phylogenetically most closely related (89.5% 16S rRNA similarity) to Treponema maltophilum, an oral spirochaete isolated from a periodontitis patient.  (+info)

In vitro activities of cephalosporins and quinolones against Escherichia coli strains isolated from diarrheic dairy calves. (7/4595)

The in vitro activities of several cephalosporins and quinolones against 195 strains of Escherichia coli isolated from diary calves affected by neonatal diarrhea were determined. One hundred thirty-seven of these strains produced one or more potential virulence factors (F5, F41, F17, cytotoxic necrotizing factor, verotoxin, and the eae gene), but the remaining 58 strains did not produce any of these factors. From 11 to 18% of the E. coli strains were resistant to cephalothin, nalidixic acid, enoxacin, and enrofloxacin. However, cefuroxime, cefotaxime, and cefquinome were highly effective against the E. coli isolates tested. Some significant differences (P < 0.05) in resistance to quinolones between the strains producing potential virulence factors and nonfimbriated, nontoxigenic, eae-negative strains were found. Thus, eae-positive, necrotoxigenic, and verotoxigenic (except for nalidixic acid) E. coli strains were significantly more sensitive to nalidixic acid, enoxacin, and enrofloxacin than nonfimbriated, nontoxigenic, eae-negative strains. Moreover, eae-positive strains were significantly more sensitive to enoxacin and enrofloxacin than F5-positive strains. Thus, the result of this study suggest that the bovine E. coli strains that produce some potential virulence factors are more sensitive to quinolones than those that do not express these factors.  (+info)

The effect of streptomycin, oxytetracycline, tilmicosin and phenylbutazone on spermatogenesis in bulls. (8/4595)

To determine whether declining semen quality associated with health problems may be due to certain antibiotic or anti-inflammatory treatments, semen was collected 3 times per week for up to 42 d from 6 normal bulls after treatment with oxytetracycline, tilmicosin, dihydrostreptomycin, or phenylbutazone. No adverse effects on semen quality were observed.  (+info)

Disease prevention and control practices are frequently highlighted as important to ensure the health and welfare of farmed animals, although little is known as to why not many practices are carried out. The aim of this study was to identify the motivators and barriers of dairy cattle farmers towards the use of biosecurity measures on dairy farms using a health psychology approach. Twenty-five farmers on 24 farms in Great Britain (GB) were interviewed using the Theory of Planned Behaviour framework. Results indicated that farmers perceived they had the ability to control what happened on their farms in terms of preventing and controlling disease, and described benefits from being proactive and vigilant. However, barriers were cited in relation to testing inaccuracies, effectiveness and time-efficiency of practices, and disease transmission route (e.g., airborne transmission). Farmers reported they were positively influenced by veterinarians and negatively influenced by the government (Department ...
Following genetic studies of deformed calves research conducted at the University of Copenhagen is able to uncover a hitherto unknown disease found among Holstein cattle. The breeding bull from which the mutation and thus the deformation originate has now been put down to prevent the disease from spreading further.

Abortion has two distinct though related meanings. The word is used to designate the act of prematurely expelling the foetus or, in common cow parlance, slinking calf. While this is the first and most common application of the term, the second, and by far the most important designation, is that of the disease which is the cause of perhaps ninety per cent of calf slinking.

Citation: N/A Interpretive Summary: During the first months of life, calves are highly susceptible to a number of infectious diseases associated with significant economic losses to the US dairy and beef cattle producers. Scientific evidence suggests that under most conditions, vitamin A and related compounds have a beneficial effect on the function of the immune systems of many types of animals. A compound related to vitamin A, called 9,13-di-cis-retinoic acid, has been found at high levels in the blood of calves and their mothers shortly after birth. The biological significance of the elevated levels of this compound is unknown. However, closely related compounds have been shown to enhance the function of the immune system of adult dairy cows. This study considered the effects of 9,13-di-cis-retinoic acid on the function of specialized cells of the immune system of the calf, called lymphocytes. Based on the results of this study, this form of vitamin A appears to have negligible effects on the ...

TY - GEN. T1 - Probability of bridge failure due to pier scour. AU - Johnson, P. A.. AU - Ayyub, B. M.. PY - 1992/12/1. Y1 - 1992/12/1. N2 - Methods have been presented for computing the probability of bridge failure due to pier scour either using a maximum scour depth model or a time-dependent model. The probability of failure provides the basis for a tool which can be used in decision-making for both design of pier foundations or assessment of existing foundations. In the design of a bridge pier, the engineer can use this method to evaluate various design alternatives as a function of parameters such as the size, shape, and depth of the pier. A particular level of risk over the life of the structure that is socially acceptable could be set by policy. If the computed probability of failure due to scour at an existing bridge is currently high or is approaching an unacceptably high level, engineers would be alerted to a need for inspection and possible control of the scour hole around the piers. ...

Coccidiosis is a protozoan cattle disease that most cattle develop some immunity to, while continuing to shed a few oocysts in their feces. Calves are the most vulnerable because they have the least immunity, particularly if they ingest a high number of immature protozoa in a dirty environment that overwhelm their immune system.

Beef cattle are cattle raised for meat production (as distinguished from dairy cattle, used for milk production). The meat of adult cattle is known as beef. In beef production there are three main stages: cow-calf operations, backgrounding, and feedlot operations. When raised in a feedlot, cattle are known as feeder cattle. Many such feeder cattle are born in cow-calf operations specifically designed to produce beef calves. While the principal use of beef cattle is meat production, other uses include leather, and products used in shampoo and cosmetics. Besides breeding to meet the demand for beef production, owners also use selective breeding to attain specific traits in their beef cattle. An example of a desired trait could be leaner meat or resistance to illness. Breeds known as dual-purpose breeds are also used for beef production. These breeds have been selected for two purposes at once, such as for both beef and dairy production, or both beef and draught. Dual-purpose breeds include the ...

BACKGROUND: Bovine coronavirus (BCoV) is a primary cause of neonatal calf diarrhea worldwide, and is also associated with acute diarrhea in adult cattle during the winter season, resulting heavy economic losses to both dairy and beef industry throughout the world. OBJECTIVE: The Objective of the present study was to screen the fecal samples for BCoV collected from diarrhea from six geographic region of Iran, with the aim to deepen the knowledge of BCoV prevalence and epidemiology in Iran. MEETHODS: 194 fecal samples from diarrheic calves up to one-month age, based on the geographic area were collected. Samples from all the cases were screened for the presence of BCoV by commercially available ELISA kit. Furthermore, all positive samples were subjected to RT-PCR for confirmation. RESULTS: ELISA examination revealed that 7.2 % of taken samples, were positive. All positive samples in ELISA were also positive in RT-PCR. All samples from northwest, northeast, and west, were negative. The average ages of

Tuli is the name of a beef cattle breed that originated from Zimbabwe. It is a form of Sanga cattle closely related to the Tswana breed from Botswana. Tuli cattle have a small thoraco-cervical hump and are uni-coloured: yellow, golden-brown or red. It has been exported to Argentina, Mexico and the United States. In South Africa a composite of Tuli and Limousin cattle has recently been developed, named Tulim cattle. When Australia decided to import the breed, it used embryo transfer in order to limit the possible transfer of African cattle diseases and parasites. The Tuli breed was founded by the Rhodesian Government at a Government station situated on the Banks of the Tuli River. The purpose was to establish an indigenous breed suited to the prevailing hot dry conditions. The person charged with the task of establishing this was Len Harvey, a member of the Department of Conservation and Extension under the auspice of the Ministry Of Agriculture. It was originally established in 1949/50. The Tuli ...
Rinderpest was initially addressed through stamping out - the slaughter of all infested or exposed animals. Later, it was brought under control by vaccination, which has been the key to its eradication in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. For vaccination to work, diagnostic tests had to be developed to identify the location and spread of the disease, which animals were infected, and to monitor the efficiency of the vaccination campaigns. The IAEA, working with the OIE and the FAO, made an important technical contribution to rinderpest eradication by developing and distributing immunological and molecular nuclear and nuclear-related technologies for the diagnosis and control of the disease. To identify the virus in animals, a nuclear related enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) technology was developed. It evolved gradually from a research tool into a safe, cost efficient and simple to use laboratory technology. In its final stage, the assay could be used to detect viral antigen in ...

The bacteria, which cause severe gastrointestinal illness and even death in humans, are spread by consuming contaminated food and water, or by contact with livestock faeces in the environment. Cattle are the main reservoir for the bacterium. The study, published online in the journal PNAS, used veterinary, human and molecular data to examine the risks of E. coli O157 transmission from cattle to humans, and to estimate the impact of vaccinating cattle. The risk of E. coli O157 infection is particularly significant when the cattle are super-shedding - excreting extremely high numbers of bacteria in their faeces for a limited period of time. Vaccines against the bacteria exist that can reduce super-shedding. As a consequence, the researchers predict that vaccinating cattle could reduce human cases by nearly 85%, far higher than the 50% predicted by studies simply looking at the efficacy of current vaccines in cattle. The research was led by a team of researchers at the University of Glasgow in ...
Cattle on Feed Report : USDA Actual Average Guess Range. Cattle on Feed January 1 108.0% 107.5% 107.0-108.0%. Placed in December 101.0% 97.0% 93.5-100.5%. Marketed in December 99.0% 98.5% 98.0-100.5%. The Jan. 1 on-feed report just released looks generally well anticipated. The December placement total turned out to be a bit larger than anticipated, but probably not seen as a greater shocker. With the 2017 placement record now complete, only February of last year saw feedlot in-movement fall below the previous year. December marketing did fall somewhat below late 2016, but keep in mind that last month contained one fewer business days than the year before.

Calf pneumonia can have a significant impact on the productivity and profitability of both dairy and beef herds.. The disease leads to reduced growth rates in cattle, increased calf mortality, increased labour requirements to look after affected calves and added costs from treatment.. And even if the animals do survive an outbreak, pneumonia can cause long-term problems because lung function is impaired.. By and large the disease affects younger animals, but it can also pose a threat to adult cattle, particularly in the dairy herd.. By understanding the factors which initiate pneumonia, farmers can take steps to minimise them and reduce infection rates across the herd.. What is pneumonia?. Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lungs, which can cause permanent damage and even death in cattle. Pneumonia can be viral or bacterial in origin, but most often viral infection is first followed by bacterial infection.. The virus or viruses impair the animals ability to get rid of the bacteria they are ...

FAIRPLAY, Colo.-A Park County District Court judge has barred a rancher who had dead animals on his property from owning, managing, controlling or possessing cattle in the county. Rancher Vernon E. Wagner said Monday he plans to appeal. Colorado agriculture department staff last year seized 379 cattle from Wagner, saying they had found about 140 dead cattle on his land. Last week, a judge ordered a permanent injunction barring Wagner from having cattle, saying there was evidence he hadnt provided adequate nutrition for them. A court-appointed receiver is caring for his surviving cattle until they are sold. Wagner continues to raise horses. The 78-year-old says his land has lush grass and water for cattle. He contends he was targeted because he has 130,000 acres that others want to control.. ...

DENVER - Despite a secretly taped video showing workers at a Southern California slaughterhouse abusing sick or crippled animals, nearly all cattle bound for American dinner tables are treated humanely, a cattle industry spokesman said Monday.
Once upon a time, cows lived in pastures and grazed on grass, living a life that was as quiet and peaceful as their bovine nature. But then, somebody discovered that feeding cattle cheap, subsidized corn would fatten them up two to three times as fast as grass and that you could raise hundreds of cattle in the same pastoral space that would only support a few. Thus began the era of modern feedlot cattle.. The truth is, a cows stomach is made to eat grass - and only grass. Corn is a grain (not a vegetable, as many think) and is harmful to a cows health and digestion. Corn-fed cows raised on a feedlot are kept in cramped, dirty conditions and because of their grain diet become sick so quickly that they need to be given frequent doses of antibiotics just to keep them alive long enough to make it to slaughter. (Heres one heart-breaking image you wont soon forget.). That sounds pretty awful, but for an industry focused on profit, the equation of corn plus growth hormones makes for fast-fattening ...

As far back as 1992 mice have been created whose DNA which codes for the production of prions has been removed. These prion knock-out mice are apparently healthy, encephalopathy resistant, and sever the chain of prion disease transmission. Why have such cattle not been developed? In the 13 years since prion knock-out mice have been developed, many have been studied and thus far they have been described as normal(1) while other studies have found differences in their patterns of sleep(2) and ataxia late in life(3,4).. Mice become ataxic at 70 weeks and the proportional age for cattle is about 13 years (based on a mouse/cattle lifespans of 2/20 years). Since most cattle are slaughtered well before 13 years of age, it seems interesting to at least study prion-null cattle. Is such research being done?. The idea is immediately obvious to anyone who has heard of prion knock-out mice, but AFAIK it has not been baked. So I submit it to the halfbakery for a vote. Is the idea of Genetically Modified ...

Beginning two years ago, about 350 indigenous women farmers from 14 localities of the central Bolivian department of Cochabamba have been applying strategies to confront climate change.. These women are part of communities from the municipalities of Tapacarí, Arque, Bolívar, and Sicaya, where in the last years the drought has worsened and there is a shortage of water reservoirs. According to the newspaper La Opinión, of every 10 watersheds, only two can supply water. Likewise, the lack of grasslands and fodder decreased the livestock production by 80 percent.. Climate change has affected farming calendars; parasite infestations and cattle diseases have increased; there has been a decrease in fodder and food for families. This has forced the campesino communities to strengthen their traditional organizations and recover ancestral knowledge and wisdom..

Feeding grain based feedlot rations to cattle offers farmers the flexibility to finish cattle quickly, to take advantage of good quality feeder cattle, good feed prices or favourable markets.. In order to take advantage of these opportunities, small and large feedlot operators must look at all the factors involved with feedlotting and in particular the management of cattle being fed high grain diets. Adaptation of cattle onto these high grain diets is of critical importance and may often determine the success of feedlotting ventures.. ...
MARKS cattle were the thrill and satisfaction of Emil Marks to raise and enjoy. The late Emil Marks was fondly remembered by Maudeen and Travis who actively pursued the goals of their wise old father. Mr. Marks raised a lot of twisty horned, brindle cattle, with strong red, dun and brown coloration. Most of the pure Marks blood was lost in the late 1960s as a result of Bangs disease. Hardly any high percentage Marks cattle remain. The old pure Marks were often of a V shape horn style similar to Brahman. Marks cattle were often very quiet and easy to train for riding or pulling wagons and believed to possess oxen origin. The numbers available today of the pure Marks blood have been diluted and are no doubt the smallest in number of the seven families. Emil Marks was a friend of Cap Yates and did at times trade or sell to the Yates family. The Marks cattle were then a part of the old Yates stock but probably not a large part considering the massive number in the Yates herd. The Marks herd ran on ...

Cattle have been domesticated for at least 10,000 years. Brought to North America by European settlers in the 1500s, cattle were first used for their skins and tallow. By the 1850s, beef gained in popularity, especially in Northern markets. Today, cattle are raised worldwide and are used for milk, meat, leather and labor.

CONTAGIOUS bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP), caused by Mycoplasma mycoides subspecies mycoides SC, is one of the most important cattle diseases in many countries of sub-Saharan Africa. Traditionally, CBPP has been controlled by the live T1/44 vaccine, which has been used in Africa for over 60 years. Vaccination has been shown to be successful when coverage of the cattle population of a country or region is high and maintained over successive years. However, it is well known that the vaccine provides only short-term immunity, can cause severe adverse reactions and is rarely effective in the face of a severe outbreak. Furthermore, mathematical modelling has shown that even a mass vaccination campaign over a five-year period is unlikely to achieve eradication unless other strategies are also used (Mariner and Catley 2004). Previously, it was believed … ...
Since 1994, Irish cattle have been exposed to greater risks of acquiring Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) infection as a consequence of the importation of over 70,000 animals from continental Europe. In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of reported clinical cases of paratuberculosis in Ireland. This study examines the prevalence of factors that promote the introduction and within-herd transmission of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) on selected Irish dairy farms in the Cork region, and the association between these factors and the results of MAP screening tests on milk sock filter residue (MFR). A total of 59 dairy farms, selected using non-random methods but apparently free of endemic paratuberculosis, were enrolled into the study. A questionnaire was used to collect data about risk factors for MAP introduction and transmission. The MFR was assessed on six occasions over 24 months for the presence of MAP, using culture and ...
This study was carried out in Njiru and Dagorreti slaughterhouses with the objective of comparing the results of complement fixation test (CFT) and pathological lesions in lung samples taken for culture and sero-prevalence of Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia (CBPP) among cattle brought for slaughter. A total of 804 serum samples and 40 suspected lung tissues were collected from both abattoirs for laboratory diagnosis. The serum and lung tissues were collected from adult cattle that were brought for slaughter. 416 serum samples were taken from Njiru and the other 388 from Dagoretti slaughterhouse.The serum samples were subjected to the complement fixation test and the lung tissues cultured in both solid media and broth. Growth of the microorganisms in the media was checked once a week for a period of one month. Any media that had no growth after a period of one month was recorded as negative. Animals for slaughter originated from 22 districts and the majority were from the arid and semi-arid ...

ANDRESIUK, M. V. et al. Echinococcus granulosus: biological comparison of cattle isolates from endemic regions of Argentina and Spain. Rev. argent. microbiol. [online]. 2009, vol.41, n.4, pp. 218-225. ISSN 1851-7617.. In the present study we have compared cattle isolates of Echinococcus granulosus from Argentina and Spain. The aim was to compare and determine if there exist phenotypic and genetic differences within E. granulosus cattle isolates between an endemic area of Spain (where the disease is mainly restricted to a sheep-dog cycle) and an endemic area of Argentina (where cattle are the most abundant intermediate hosts). The Spanish samples were previously identified as G1 genotype. The Argentinean samples were also identified as G1, but some variants were found for the cytochrome c oxidase-1 (CO1) and NADH dehydrogenase-1 (ND1) mitochondrial genes. When comparing the cyst features and the morphology of the larval rostellar hooks in both regions, some differences were found. The ...
The aim of the study was to diagnose Sarcocystis sp. infections in cattle and to detect coinfections by Toxoplasma gondii and/or Neospora caninum. Blood, diaphragm, esophagus, and myocardium from 90 beef cattle from Argentina were collected. Histopathological, immunohistochemical, polymerase chain reaction assays, and direct microscopical examination were carried out. Sarcocysts from myocardium were measured and counted. Indirect fluorescent antibody test (IFAT) for the three protozoans was performed. Sarcocystis cruzi sarcocysts were found in 100% of myocardium samples. Sarcocysts per gram ranged from 8 to 380 with higher values found in adult cattle (p < 0.001). T. gondii and N. caninum were not detected by immunohistochemistry. T. gondii DNA was found in myocardium of 2/20 seropositive animals, while N. caninum DNA was not found. Antibodies against S. cruzi were detected in all samples, those against N. caninum in 73% and against T. gondii in 91% of the samples (IFAT titer >/=25). It is ...

Mannheimia haemolytica is an opportunistic pathogen in cattle and the main bacterial agent in bovine respiratory disease. Despite its economic importance, few studies have characterized the genetic diversity of M. haemolytica, particularly from feedlots. Three genotyping techniques (BOX-PCR, (GTG)5-PCR and PFGE) were compared to discriminate M. haemolytica and strains from the family Pasteurellaceae. PFGE was the most discriminating and repeatable, although BOX-PCR was most accurate in clustering isolates together according to species. Mannheimia haemolytica was isolated from nasal swab samples collected from cattle upon entry and exit from two feedlots in southern Alberta. These were characterized by PFGE and antimicrobial susceptibility using a disk-diffusion assay. Select gene determinants were screened for using PCR. PFGE analysis revealed the isolates to be highly diverse. Ten percent of the isolates exhibited resistance. At present, the development and spread of antimicrobial resistance in ...
