Cross-sectional Prevalence of Helminth Infections in Cattle on Traditional, Small-scale and Large-scale Dairy Farms in Iringa District, Tanzania
Results indicated that the type of management, especially the grazing habit, has a significant influence on the prevalence and intensity of GI nematodes and flukes and the variation in the prevalence among management and age groups within systems can be used as an entry point towards rational use of anthelmintics for each management system.
Epidemiology of Fasciola gigantica and Amphistomes in Cattle on Traditional, Small-scale Dairy and Large-scale Dairy Farms in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania
The proportion of animals passing fluke eggs increased gradually from the early dry season and peaked at the end of the drySeason and the early part of the rainy season, indicating a significant influence of the type of management on the prevalence of both Fasciola and amphistomes.
Scaling-Up the Use of Chili Fences for Reducing Human-Elephant Conflict Across Landscapes in Tanzania
Elephants (Loxodonta africana) raiding crops around Tanzanian national parks threaten farmers' lives and livelihoods, thus contributing to negative local attitudes towards wildlife. As a result,
Prevalence and risk factors for infection of bovine tuberculosis in indigenous cattle in the Serengeti ecosystem, Tanzania
There is a possibility of cross transmission of bTB at wildlife-livestock interface areas that necessitates use of genetic strain typing methods to characterize them accurately and poor knowledge of most cattle owners concerning bTB and its transmission pathways among people, livestock and wildlife is demonstrated.
The distribution of Fasciola hepatica and Fasciola gigantica within southern Tanzania – constraints associated with the intermediate host
Molecular data confirmed the existence of the snail, Lymnaea truncatula, at high altitude on the Kitulo Plateau of the Southern Highlands, Tanzania, along with morphometric and molecular data confirming the presence of F. hepatica in the corresponding area and analysis based on a 618 bp sequence of the 28S rRNA gene did not reveal the presenceof hybrid fasciolids in fluke samples.
Bovine tuberculosis at the human-livestock-wildlife interface: is it a public health problem in Tanzania? A review.
The potential health and economic impact of bovine tuberculosis and challenges to its control are reviewed in order to safeguard human and animal population in Tanzania.
Efficacy of Albendazole and Levamisole against Gastrointestinal Nematodes of Sheep and Goats in Morogoro, Tanzania
The study indicated that the gastrointestinal nematodes of sheep at the Department of Animal Science and Production farm were still resistant to albendazole about ten years after this anthelmintic had been withdrawn from use.
Gastrointestinal Nematodes in Indigenous Zebu Cattle under Pastoral and Nomadic Management Systems in the Lower Plain of the Southern Highlands of Tanzania
An additional wet season treatment is advisable in immature cattle, but may not be needed for mature cattle owing to the availability of plenty of mature, good quality pasture, and anthelmintic treatments in the late rainy/early dry season and early rainy season are recommended.
