Current levels of heavy metal pollution in Africa. (4/252)

Studies of environmental pollution in Africa indicate that toxic metal pollution has reached unprecedented levels over the past decade. Human exposure to toxic metals has become a major health risk on the continent and is the subject of increasing attention from national and international environmentalists. This paper reviews data from the past decade on environmental pollution in Africa and highlights countries where most heavy metal pollutions have been reported. Characteristics of heavy metal pollution in North, West, East and Southern regions of Africa have been described, as have major sources of pollution in the different regions. This review summarizes the sites where most of the heavy metal pollution has been reported in Africa and, where applicable, presents reported levels of pollution in different environmental compartments in the context of internationally acceptable limits. Contaminations in fish and food animals as well as impacts of heavy metal pollution on humans are also described.  (+info)

Characterization of antibiotic resistance and the emergence of AmpC-producing Salmonella Infantis from pigs. (7/252)

During the period of 2007-2008, a total of 270 pig fecal samples were collected from a meat processing plant located in southern Japan and examined for Salmonella species. A total of 44 Salmonella isolates were recovered, and antimicrobial resistance was detected in serotypes Typhimurium (n=9), Infantis and Choleraesuis (n=2), and Derby, Miyazaki and Schwarzengrund (n=1). Multidrug resistance was seen in serotypes Typhimurium (n=8) and Infantis (n=2). The most commonly observed resistance phenotypes were against streptomycin, oxytetracycline and sulfamethoxazole (100%), ampicillin (90%), chloramphenicol (50%), cephalothin (30%) and cefoxitin, ceftazidime and kanamycin (each 20%). Extended-spectrum cephalosporin-resistant Salmonella Infantis isolates producing plasmid-mediated, bla(CMY-2) gene were detected. These AmpC-producing isolates showed resistance to ampicillin and cephems (cephalothin, cefoxitin and ceftazidime). Resistance transfer experiments showed that transconjugants and transformants coexpressed resistance phenotypes similar to the donor isolates. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report worldwide describing serovar Infantis from pigs capable of producing AmpC beta-lactamase. Then, we detected the pentadrug-resistance phenotype in Salmonella Typhimurium isolates, which yielded class 1 integron amplicons of 1.0 and 1.2 kb. Genetic fingerprinting analysis by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and an assay by polymerase chain reaction confirmed the isolates to be Salmonella Typhimurium DT104. In conclusion, the findings of this survey call for the systematic and comprehensive domestic and international surveillance programs to determine the true rates of occurrence of AmpC-producing Salmonella both in the livestock and public health sectors.  (+info)

Rates of colonization with livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) sequence type 398 have been high for pigs and pig farmers in Canada, but prevalence rates for the general human population are unknown. In this study, 5 LA-MRSA isolates, 4 of which were obtained from skin and soft tissue infections, were identified from 3,687 tested MRSA isolates from persons in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, Canada. Further molecular characterization determined that these isolates all contained staphylococcal cassette chromosome (SCC) mecV, were negative for Panton-Valentine leukocidin, and were closely related by macrorestriction analysis with the restriction enzyme Cfr91. The complete DNA sequence of the SCCmec region from the isolate showed a novel subtype of SCCmecV harboring clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats and associated genes. Although prevalence of livestock-associated MRSA seems to be low for the general population in Canada, recent emergence of infections
In the past decade, livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) strains in particular of the clonal complex (CC) 398 have emerged in many parts of the world especially in areas with a high density of pig farming. In those regions, farmworkers and other individuals with professional contact to livestock are very frequently colonized with LA-MRSA. These persons are the presumably source for LA-MRSA transmission to household members and other parts of the human population. Altogether, colonization and/or infection of these individuals lead to the introduction of LA-MRSA into hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Since LA-MRSA CC398 have been found to be specifically adapted to their animal hosts in terms of the equipment with virulence factors, their pathogenicity to human patients is a matter of debate with first reports about clinical cases. Meanwhile, case reports, case series and few studies have demonstrated the capability of LA-MRSA to cause all types of ...
Recent publications have raised concerns of reduced susceptibilities of clinical bacterial isolates towards biocides. This study presents a comparative investigation of the susceptibility of livestock-associated Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA), hospital-acquired MRSA (HA-MRSA) and community-aquired MRSA (CA-MRSA) to the commonly used antiseptics chlorhexidine (CHX), octenidine (OCT), polyhexanide (PHMB), PVP-iodine (PVP-I) and triclosan (TCX) based on internationally accepted standards. In total, 28 (18 LA-, 5 HA- and 5 CA) genetically characterized MRSA strains representing a broad spectrum of hosts, clonal complexes and spa-types, as well as the reference methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) strain ATCC 6538, were selected. Minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimal microbicidal concentration (MBC) were determined in accordance with DIN 58940-7, 58940-8 and DIN EN ISO 20776-1. The microbicidal efficacy was determined in accordance with DIN EN 1040. Results

[Open access]In recent years, livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) multi locus sequence type CC398 has spread widely in the livestock production in Europe. The rates of LA-MRSA in hospitals have been found to be largely determined by contact to and density of livestock in the area
The farming community can be a vehicle for introduction of livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) in hospitals. During 2011-2013, an 18-month longitudinal study aimed at reducing the prevalence of LA-MRSA was conducted on 36 pig farms in the Netherlands. Evaluations every 6 months showed a slight decrease in MRSA prevalence in animals and a stable prevalence in farmers and family members. Antimicrobial use, expressed as defined daily dosages per animal per year, decreased 44% during the study period and was associated with declining MRSA prevalence in pigs. MRSA carriage in animals was substantially higher at farms using cephalosporins. Antimicrobial use remained strongly associated with LA-MRSA in humans regardless of the level of animal contact. A risk factor analysis outlined potential future interventions for LA-MRSA control. These results should encourage animal and public health authorities to maintain their efforts in reducing antimicrobial use in ...

Staphylococcus aureus MRSA strains belonging to the clonal complex 398 (CC398) are highly prevalent in livestock and companion animals but may also cause serious infections in humans. The authors isolated and characterized four temperate phages (P240, P282, P630 and P1105) containing genes of the immune evasion cluster (IEC) and/or for the Panton-Valentine leucocidin (PVL). The data demonstrate that lysogenic conversion of LA-CC398 strains by virulence-associated phages may occur and that new pathotypes may emerge by this mechanism..

Originally published by CIDRAP News May 31. Livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) appears to be spreading further into the community and healthcare settings in Denmark, researchers reported yesterday in Clinical Infectious Diseases.. In the study, researchers evaluated data on all Danish patients who were registered as having had an episode of MRSA bloodstream infection (BSI) or skin and soft tissue infection (SSTI) from 2010 through 2015. Using molecular sequencing tests, they set out to determine how many were caused by LA-MRSA clonal complex 398 (CC398), which has been causing an increasing number of human infections in Denmark and other European countries with industrial pig production. While SSTIs caused by LA-MRSA CC398 have been studied and are mainly associated with livestock workers, less is known about the strains impact on BSIs.. The researchers also wanted to compare LA-MRSA CC398 BSI cases to SSTI cases caused by the strain and to BSI cases ...

Pastoralists living in the rural study villages near Ruaha National Park face challenges common to pastoralists in other regions of sub-Saharan Africa, including lack of livestock health services, pasture and water scarcity, and limited access to livestock markets (e.g. Lybbert et al. 2004; Mosalagae and Magotsi 2013). Livestock disease was identified as a limiting factor to pastoralist livestock production and herd sustainability at multiple stakeholder levels, but some disease priorities differ among pastoralists, government extension officers, and veterinary officials responsible for disease surveillance and services at broader geographic levels. The combination of disease and decreased access to pasture and water resources represents a significant threat to the pastoralist system in the Ruaha landscape. In the face of climate variability and landscape change, targeted livestock health education for pastoralists and extension officers was identified as a common pathway for improving herd ...

About 25% of European livestock intake is based on permanent and sown grasslands. To fulfill rising demand for animal products, an intensification of livestock production may lead to an increased consumption of crop and compound feeds. In order to preserve an economically and environmentally sustainable agriculture, a more forage based livestock alimentation may be an advantage. However, besides management, grassland productivity is highly vulnerable to climate (i.e., temperature, precipitation, CO2 concentration), and spatial information about European grassland productivity in response to climate change is scarce. The process-based vegetation model ORCHIDEE-GM, containing an explicit representation of grassland management (i.e., herbage mowing and grazing), is used here to estimate changes in potential productivity and potential grass-fed ruminant livestock density across European grasslands over the period 19612010. Here potential grass-fed ruminant livestock density denotes the maximum ...

Dimensions: 10.9in. x 8.0in. x 0.5in.This report is an overview of the management of risk due to livestock diseases, a potentially catastrophic type of risk that can have strong external effects given its links to the food chain and to human health. Animal disease, primarily in farmed livestock, has long been a policy concern for food safety reasons and the high economic losses it can engender. The globalisation of trade and human movement, and sensitivities to food safety, enhance the relevance and complexity of disease control for terrestrial livestock. Outbreaks or even rumours of an outbreak can result in widespread consumer alarm, disruption of trade, and severe effects on incomes, not to mention the human cost of illnesses and deaths arising from animal disease.

Livestock production is an important contributor to rural development. In the past two decades, developing countries have experienced changes in market structures, climate and demographic characteristics. These changes have been accompanied by fast growth in demand for livestock products and the increasing dependence on livestock for sustainable livelihood systems. In response to these changes, there has been rapid land use and land cover changes, characterized by expansion of agricultural land, and land fragmentation. This has caused environmental degradation in several rural areas, including the River Njoro watershed. Policy makers and development agents are therefore, facing a dilemma on trade-offs between meeting the expanding demand for livestock products and sustainable utilization of the limited stock of natural resources. At the backdrop of this dilemma, this study sought to identify and characterize livestock production systems in Njoro River watershed using principal components and cluster

Sixty percent of all meat consumed in the UK is imported from European countries where there have been increasing reports of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) identified in food-producing animals, but rarely from such animals in the UK. Thirty samples each of raw chicken, pork and beef, sourced in England, were collected from retail outlets in Greater Manchester. MRSA was recovered from three chicken samples and one each of pork and beef, all from prepackaged supermarket meat. Four isolates were identified as representatives of the most common human healthcare-associated MRSA clone in the UK [EMRSA-15, spa type t032, belonging to multilocus sequence type clonal complex 22 (MLST-CC22)], suggesting contamination from human source(s) during meat processing. The fifth isolate (from chicken) was multiply-resistant (including oxacillin, ciprofloxacin, erythromycin, clindamycin and tetracycline), identified as ST9-SCCmecIV, spa type t1939 and lacked the immune evasion cluster, a ...
This report looks at the contribution of models to identify the characteristics of livestock systems which are likely to lead to the emergence of zoonoses hotspots, with emphasis on developing countries. It focuses on mathematical and economic models, and includes a short review of the current usage of models - and particularly network and agent-based methods - in studying zoonotic disease outbreaks. The report concludes that most models capture outbreaks over a relatively short time and largely ignore socioeconomic and climate change drivers. It suggests that a new modelling framework is needed, along with improved data collection and uncertainty analysis and communication.. {{LINK_LABEL_GO_TO_DOCUMENT}} ...

Consumers are increasingly demanding higher standards for how their meat is sourced, with animal welfare and the impact on the environment factoring in many purchases. Unfortunately, many widely-used livestock production methods are currently unsustainable. However, new research out today from the University of Cambridge has identified what may be the future of sustainable livestock production: silvopastoral systems which include shrubs and trees with edible leaves or fruits as well as herbage.
The veterinarian in Africa has two rather different functions with regard to livestock health and development. The first is to provide health services to existing livestock populations in existing production systems. The second centres on the premise that a major need in Africa is the develop ment of livestock production; this implies changing existing production systems, and it is a function of the veterinarian to help bring about such changes. Introducing changes in any livestock production system involves interfering in a very complex process. Livestock production systems, like all other systems, consist of an assembly of related components which combine for some common purpose. It is simply not possible to change one component in isolation without affecting the other components of the system. For example, when building a dip the aspects that need to be taken into consideration are inputs, dipping and outputs. These aspects are closely interrelated and must be considered from a holistic point ...
Speaking on the occasion, Shri Singh expressed that by eradicating the dreaded Rinderpest disease India has proved its ability to face the challenges with successful outcome. He stressed that similar efforts are needed to control and eradicate the diseases like FMD, PPR, Brucellosis, CSF, BT, HS etc., which cause huge economic loss annually to the livestock rearers and livestock industry as whole.. He also mentioned that ICAR-NIVEDI has identified 13 priority diseases based on their past incidence patterns and has built a strong database of these diseases and has been providing monthly livestock disease alerts to the state and central animal husbandry departments. He said the complex statistical algorithm also considers both climatic and non-climatic factors and categorizes districts into Very High Risk, High Risk, Moderate Risk, Low Risk, Very Low Risk and No Risk for a particular disease, so that stake holders can effectively plan and utilize the available resources. Shri Gajendra Singh ...

Helping Dairy, Beef and Other Producers Protect Working Grasslands in 43 States. WASHINGTON, Jan. 13, 2017 - U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Val Dolcini today announced that USDA will accept over 300,000 acres in 43 states that were offered by producers during the recent ranking period for the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) Grasslands enrollment with emphasis placed on small-scale livestock operations. Through the voluntary CRP Grasslands program, grasslands threatened by development or conversion to row crops are maintained as livestock grazing areas, while providing important conservation benefits. Approximately 200,000 of the accepted acres were offered by small-scale livestock operations.. Producers of all sizes are interested in USDAs Conservation Reserve Program, said Dolcini. This latest round of CRP Grasslands enrollment, where much of the acreage comes from small-scale livestock operations, shows that our nations family farmers and ...
© 2014 Fauna and Flora International. Livestock depredation has implications for conservation and agronomy; it can be costly for farmers and can prompt retaliatory killing of carnivores. Lethal control measures are readily available and are reportedly perceived to be cheaper, more practical and more effective than non-lethal methods. However, the costs and efficacy of lethal vs non-lethal approaches have rarely been compared formally. We conducted a 3-year study on 11 South African livestock farms, examining costs and benefits of lethal and non-lethal conflict mitigation methods. Farmers used existing lethal control in the first year and switched to guardian animals (dogs Canis familiaris and alpacas Lama pacos) or livestock protection collars for the following 2 years. During the first year the mean cost of livestock protection was USD 3.30 per head of stock and the mean cost of depredation was USD 20.11 per head of stock. In the first year of non-lethal control the combined implementation and running
Feeding nine billion people in 2050 within the carrying capacity of the earth is perhaps the greatest challenge mankind has ever faced. An important aspect of the debate about feeding the world is the role of livestock production. The current livestock sector already poses severe pressure on the environment and competes increasingly for scarce resources, such as land, water, fossil energy and phosphorus. The demand for livestock products is expected to increase significantly. Without major changes, therefore, the above described environmental concerns about the livestock sector will increase only further. So we are facing an urgent question: how to reduce the environmental impact of production of animal-source food? To gain insight into future options and limitations of reducing the environmental impact of livestock production, we need sound environmental impact assessment tools. The aim of this course is to provide participants with advanced knowledge, both theoretical and practical, on the ...
Discussion. In the present study, it was documented that tetracyclines (33.6%), fluoroquinolones (26.5%) and beta-lactams/ aminoglycosides (20.4%) constituted the majority of antimicrobials used in livestock animal production in southwestern Nigeria. The study also found that overall antibiotic consumption increased across the years by 40.4% between 2010 and 2012, whereas the annual livestock growth rate in the area is 2% (Ikhatua 2000). Unlike other antibiotics, the use of tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones, beta-lactams/aminoglycosides and macrolides increased consistently across the years. In addition, a wet-dry season gradient in the quantities of antibiotics consumed over the study period was documented, with significantly higher consumption during the rainy season.. The finding that tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones and beta-lactams/aminoglycosides were the leading antimicrobials used in livestock production in the study area is consistent with a previous report (Adesokan et al. 2013), which ...

Over the past 30 years, feral swine have expanded their range from 17 to 38 states in the United States. Their expansion has resulted in substantial costs to agricultural producers. In particular, feral swine impacts to livestock production include the spread of disease, predation on livestock, and effects on international trade. NWRC economists collaborated with the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service to survey more than 6,300 livestock producers in 13 states (Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas) about feral swine damage. Findings indicate that predation and disease-related damage can be substantial in certain states and for certain types of livestock. In particular, damage to cattle operations in Texas and Arkansas was substantially higher than damage in other states and types of livestock operations. When extrapolated to livestock producers across the entire 13-state region, ...
Brucellosis is a serious public health issue in India. Estimation of economic losses occurring due to brucellosis is required to help formulate prevention and control strategies, but has not been done in India. We estimated economic losses due to brucellosis by sourcing prevalence data from epidemiological surveys conducted in India. Data for livestock populations were obtained from official records. Probability distributions were used for many of the input parameters to account for uncertainty and variability. The analysis revealed that brucellosis in livestock is responsible for a median loss of US $ 3.4 billion (5th-95th percentile 2.8-4.2 billion). The disease in cattle and buffalo accounted for 95.6% of the total losses occurring due to brucellosis in livestock populations. The disease is responsible for a loss of US$ 6.8 per cattle, US$18.2 per buffalo, US$ 0.7 per sheep, US$ 0.5 per goat and US$ 0.6 per pig. These losses are additional to the economic and social consequences of the ...
A recent report conducted by the University of Illinois provides an economic snapshot of the current state of the livestock industry, giving the Illinois livestock industry data to back up their importance to the state. The data show the production sector of the industry contributing to more than 25,000 jobs and $3.5 billion to the states economy. When combined with meat and dairy processing, the numbers are an even more impressive 99,000 jobs and $27 billion.. The meat and dairy complex, which includes the livestock industry, is big, approaching 5 percent of the gross state product, said Peter Goldsmith, U of I agricultural and consumer economist in the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences. Thats a lot of employees, a lot of taxes, and much of its impact occurs in urban areas through industrial processing and food manufacturing where we dont have a lot of agricultural votes. So, strategically, the meat and dairy processing sector seems like a really good ...
Climate change is going to have large effects on the production of livestock in eastern Africa. The impacts will come not just from the biophysical effects of climate change but also in the form of policies that will be formulated in reaction to global processes requiring national adaptation and mitigation interventions. There are multiple ways to frame livestock keeping in eastern Africa, leading to high levels of ambiguity. As researchers generate scientific evidence and policy makers seek to revise or generate policies, the role of science-policy interfaces is crucial in navigating the use of knowledge in policy formulation. Laura Cramers research will examine how scientific evidence is employed by knowledge-brokers and used to inform policies related to livestock and climate change in Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia. There is a growing emphasis on the use of science to inform policy, but the complexities of policy making processes are not always acknowledged. This research will look at the role ...
Animal Husbandry has established itself as the second largest business in rural India after agriculture. In rural India, animal husbandry is a traditional and ancient occupation. Which provides home-based employment opportunities to semi-skilled and non-skilled people. Animal husbandry is a means of livelihood for the family by providing a complementary, permanent recurring income to the woman pastoralist. Out of 101 lakh households in the state of Gujarat, 3 lakh households (51.5%) are engaged in animal husbandry and out of them 16.50 lakh households (12.5%) are living below the poverty line. For which the business of animal husbandry is the only source of livelihood for his family. Livestock production accounts for a significant share of the states revenue, as livestock production and by-product production have steadily increased. From the livestock sector in the state, Rs. Revenue is estimated at Rs 21,08 crore. According to the livestock census of 2009, compared to the livestock census of ...
The LWCC which stands for humane livestock production and has been in existence since 1978 and had functioned as a Committee of the previous Meat Board, until the Boards final closure in 2002.

Mindy J. Spiehs. The livestock industry has undergone substantial changes in the past few decades. The poultry, swine, and dairy industries in particular have become increasingly concentrated. This has resulted in fewer, but larger, livestock operations throughout the country. As a result, there has been a growing concern about odor emissions from livestock operations and potential decreased water quality caused by nutrient runoff from livestock manure. One of the key components to lowering air and water pollution from manure is the animal diet.. All animals, whether ruminant (cattle and sheep) or non-ruminant (pigs and chickens), have five basic nutritional needs. Animals need energy which is provided by fats and carbohydrates in the diet, protein, water, vitamins, and minerals. Even in the best management situations, animals are not able to utilize 100% of the nutrients that are consumed. Some nutrients will be excreted in the manure. Nutrients excreted in manure come from four primary ...

The ecology of Staphylococcus aureus in animals has recently gained attention by the research community due to the emergence of livestock-associated methicillin-resistant strains (MRSA). We investigated carriage frequency and clonal diversity of S. aureus in 179 sheep and 17 goats in Denmark using spa typing and MLST. S. aureus was detected in 74 sheep (41%) and 11 goats (64%). The isolates belonged to 26 spa types (including six novel spa types) and 12 STs (including three novel STs). The most common lineage was ST133, which was found in 65% sheep and 55% goats. MRSA was found in three animals and two of them harboured mecC and corresponded to the same lineage (ST130, t843) previously reported in mecC-associated human MRSA infections in Denmark. The remaining MRSA isolate belonged to ST398 but its recovery in sheep could be a consequence of cross contamination due to contact with pigs. This study provides novel data about the occurrence of S. aureus in small ruminants, revealing high carriage ...

One doesnt have to be a rocket scientist to make the statement that grain and livestock markets are down, but you still need something to quantify the drop. I was happy to see DTN The Progressive Farmer come out with their Ag Confidence Index, which was just released. This index has come out three times each year since 2010 - before planting, before harvest and after harvest. A score of 100 on the Index is neutral. As I see it, it did represent farming more than livestock interests, but for sure, livestock was involved.. Either way, the index continues to fall. Lower commodity prices, ongoing higher input costs and lower income projections have ag producers feeling more pessimistic about their industry than ever before, according to the latest Agriculture Confidence Index (ACI). Lets face it - commodity prices are down from record prices we saw a few years ago, as are livestock prices, but it wasnt too long ago that we had record prices for cattle producers. While I do believe grain prices ...

Posted on Freedom Advocates on May 1st 2010. By [post_author] -. Billings, Montana -As weve all been told by our mothers, and as any veterinarian will tell you, prevention is the best of all medicines. As cattle producers, we spend billions to prevent diseases from infecting our livestock through vaccination programs and good husbandry practices. Collectively, our livestock industry spent billions more in eradicating diseases from within our border for the same reason - to prevent diseases from infecting U.S. livestock.. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) was once our partner in disease prevention. For decades the U.S. livestock industry worked shoulder-to-shoulder with USDA to eradicate and control such diseases as foot-and-mouth disease (FMD), brucellosis, bovine tuberculosis (TB) and many others. And, USDA did a superb job of preventing disease from being reintroduced through our borders by imposing strict restrictions on imports of livestock and livestock products that could cause ...

The livestock sector is an integral part of agriculture in Pakistan. Livestock accounts for 37% of the agricultural GDP and about 9% of the total GDP. This is derived from a livestock population of about 25.5 million buffaloes, 23.8 million cattle, 24.7 million sheep, 54.7 million goats, and 5.4 million other animals (Economic Survey 2003-04). Based on the previous census 13.1 million buffaloes, 9.38 million cattle, 6.14 million sheep, 15.3 million goats, and 2.37 million other animals were found in the Punjab province.. The livestock wealth of Punjab is well adapted to hot and humid conditions, tolerant to tropical diseases and good converters of poor quality roughages into milk and meat. Yet despite the high yielding native meat and milk breeding stock, little attempt has been made to select for quality animals. The same applies to the task of maintaining purebred lines or of breeding selectively for qualities adapted to local conditions. Any surviving animal tends to be retained as member of ...

Introduction. Tick-borne diseases are major constraints to livestock production throughout the tropics and sub-tropics. Losses in livestock production due to external parasites have long been a major concern to livestock producers in the tropics and subtropics (Seifert, 1984a; b). One million cattle are estimated to have died of East Coast fever in sub-Saharan Africa during 1989 alone (Mukhebi et al., 1992). In South Africa, tick-borne diseases have been estimated to cost the livestock industry about R 70 to R 200 million per year (Bigalke, 1980).. Various tick-borne disease control methods have been employed in South Africa (Bigalke et al., 1976; De Vos, 1979; Purnell & Schroder, 1984). Historically, the earliest tick control trials with dipping agents in South Africa started in 1889. These trials were prompted by the discovery in the USA in 1893 that ticks transmit the causal piroplasm of redwater in cattle (Hayward, 1981). Increase in acaricides prices and drug resistance pose challenges in ...

Keywords: Phosphorus, livestock production, phosphorus sources, phosphorus efficiency, availability, phytase.. Efficient production of livestock and poultry (and fish and pets) and the maintaining the good health of animals requires essential nutrients provided in appropriate amounts that are biologically utilisable. Dietary standards or allowances and thus phosphorus requirements for most animals have been established but are not always well-defined. In order to meet the requirements of the animal and without jeopardising animal health and production the phosphorus recommendations for most animals often include a safety margin and thus unneccessarily high rates of phosphorus are often recommended. Further, phosphorus sources, whether organic or inorganic, frequently have a wide range of bioavailability with those of lowest bioavailability being only utilised to some 50%. As a consequence, in many areas of the world with high livestock and poultry densities, the contribution of animal production ...

The economic organization of animal agriculture in Europe and North America has changed dramatically since World War II, and similar trends affect livestock farming the world over. There are fewer farms with integrated crop and livestock production, and more that purchase feed to support a specialized, single commodity animal production facility. Old production systems tended to be extensive; new systems are intensive and often utilize confined animal production facilities (CAFOs). The location of animal production is shifting accordingly, and counties, provinces or regions with transportation terminals for feedgrain inputs and a political environment tolerant of CAFO building requirements and waste disposal systems are experiencing a rapid growth both in the number of animal production facilities and in the total number of animals. In the swine sector, these changes are accompanied by vertical integration, where livestock production is either wholly owned or contracted by processing companies ...
A weatherized mineral mixture is produced by heating a digestible fat or fatty acid and spraying a mineral mixture with the heated digestible fatty acid to form a protective layer over the mineral mixture. The weatherized mineral mixture may be free of salts of fatty acids, namely soaps. The weatherized mineral mixture sheds water and is wind-resistant. Upon ingestion by livestock animals, the protective coating is digested and the minerals within the mineral mixture are absorbed by the livestock animal.
