Bovine testes and bovine embryo kidney cells were infected with the bovine viral diarrhoea virus Oregon strain. Detergent treatment of infected cells released the antigenic particles which were subsequently coated onto microtitre plates. As a control, antigen was prepared in the same way from uninfected cells. An established direct ELISA for antigen detection demonstrated that antigen can be p ...

Tick resistance to dips.

Duncan I.M. [1993]

Compulsory short-interval dipping of cattle for tick control has been enforced in Zimbabwe since the early part of this century. Intensive dipping was initially introduced as a measure to control East Coast fever (ECF), following its introduction from eastern Africa. Dipping was subsequently found to be effective in the control of heartwater and other tick-borne diseases, and it continued to b ...

The bioavailability of phenylbutazone was investigated in six adult cattle in a crossover study after intravenous and oral administration of the drug at a dose rate of 4.4 mg/kg. The drug concentration in plasma was determined in each administration route. The mean bioavalilability for the granular formulation was 56.9 and a considerable variation between animals occurred. The mean maximum pla ...

The paper discusses the need to line infield canals because of the light soils in Zimbabwe, the undulating steep slopes, the prevalence of bilharzia and the management of the environment of the smallholder irrigation schemes, large or small. For smaller schemes brick lined canals may be more suitable for the following reasons: very low external costs, the only external costs are the steel eart ...
