Control of tick fever in introduced cattle

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Cattle introduced to properties within the cattle tick endemic regions of Australia, especially from cattle tick-free regions, may be susceptible to acute, life-threatening disease due to tick fever (babesiosis or anaplasmosis). Vaccines are available to help prevent clinical tick fever, but there are a number of considerations which need to be taken into account for vaccination to be effective. This presentation will cover the various factors affecting whether vaccination will be effective, and the common problems encountered with vaccination of introduced animals.
