Tick-borne diseases - a threat against grazing cattle in a warmer climate

Foto: Bengt Ekberg SVA

Specific aims are to conduct a pilot study to investigate the occurrence of infectious agents in ticks and blood samples from outdoor cattle which have been affected by serious disease problems most likely caused by tick-borne infections, and to investigate if tick prophyloactics can reduce the risk for disease problems among grazing young-stock. The long-term aim is to reduce the risk for tick-borne infections among grazing cattle.
