Herbage intake was measured in two groups of 20 first-year grazing cattle. The animals in one group each received a morantel sustained release bolus at turnout to control nematode parasitism and the animals in the other group remained untreated. The latter group showed a mean peak faecal egg count of 655 eggs per gram (e.p.g.) in October associated with(More)
The efficacy of a pulse-release oxfendazole bolus (OPRB) against gastrointestinal nematodes was evaluated under field conditions and compared with a sustained release morantel bolus (MSRB). Three groups of 10 calves were grazed from May to September on adjacent, similarly contaminated 3-acre paddocks. One group was dosed at turnout with the OPRB, the second(More)
The effectiveness of albendazole in a controlled-release bolus in controlling gastrointestinal nematodes in lambs was assessed during the summer of 1986. Faecal egg counts were almost entirely negative throughout in the treated group and larval challenge remained low at below 2000 larvae kg-1. Untreated control lambs showed a characteristic pattern of(More)
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that health care personnel (HCP) infected with pandemic influenza (H1N1) 2009 virus not work until 24 hours after fever subsides without the use of antipyretics. During an influenza outbreak, we examined the association between viral shedding and fever among infected HCP. Participants recorded(More)
The progress of two groups of 10 calves, which had previously been exposed to trichostrongyle infections by grazing infected pastures, was monitored from housing in October to slaughter the following April. Each of the animals of one group had received a morantel sustained release bolus, the other control group remained untreated. The high faecal egg counts(More)
The efficacy of albendazole in an intraruminal controlled-release device against gastrointestinal nematodes in calves was evaluated under field conditions. Calf productivity was monitored during the first and second grazing seasons. Two groups of parasite-naive Holstein Friesian heifer calves were grazed from May to October on adjacent, similarly(More)
