The distribution of SNP marker effects for faecal worm egg count in sheep, and the feasibility of using these markers to predict genetic merit for resistance to worm infections.
It is demonstrated that methods which use all markers simultaneously can successfully predict genetic merit for resistance to worms, despite the small effects of individual markers.

Detection of Theileria orientalis genotypes in Haemaphysalis longicornis ticks from southern Australia
This paper provides the first investigation into the possible biological and mechanical vectors involved in the rapid spread of the Theileria orientalis parasite in the current Australasian disease outbreak.
Immunological responses to vaccination following experimental Lawsonia intracellularis virulent challenge in pigs.
A new simplified assay for larval migration inhibition.
The comparative susceptibility of five breeds of sheep to foot-rot.
There was little difference between resistant and susceptible sheep in the kinetics and magnitude of their antibacterial immune responses indicating that resistance did not depend on pre-existing antibody or a more rapid induction of antibody production.
The sensitization of mucosal mast cells during infections with Trichostrongylus colubriformis or Haemonchus contortus in sheep.
Mechanical transfer of Theileria orientalis: possible roles of biting arthropods, colostrum and husbandry practices in disease transmission
T. orientalis is capable of being mechanically transferred by intravenous inoculation with small volumes of blood and is detectable up to 5 months post-infection.
