The effect of dietary sainfoin (Onobrychis viciifolia) on local cellular responses to Trichostrongylus colubriformis in sheep
(Cambridge University Press, 2008-08)
The effect of sainfoin (Onobrychis viciifolia) hay consumption on the pathophysiology and local cellular responses of growing lambs during infection with Trichostrongylus colubriformis was investigated. Thirty-two lambs, ...
Direct anthelmintic and immunostimulatory effects of oral dosing semi-purified phytohaemagglutinin lectin in sheep infected with Teladorsagia circumcincta and Trichostrongylus colubriformis
(Elsevier B.V. on behalf of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP), the European Veterinary Parasitology College (EVPC), and the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP), 2012-06-08)
Lectins are plant secondary compounds that can have anthelmintic properties in vitro. In particular, the phytohaemagglutinin lectin extracted from Phaseolus vulgaris has been shown to inhibit the feeding of Trichostrongylus ...
Comparison of the timing of development of immunity in Romney lambs from resistant and resilient selection lines
(Elsevier on behalf of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP), European Veterinary Parasitology College (EVPC), and the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP), 2019-06)
Variation in the timing of development of immunity to gastro-intestinal nematode parasites was assessed in resistant and resilient Romney selection lines exposed to mixed natural infection. From weaning, at mean 92 ...
Attempts to induce tolerance to Trichostrongylus colubriformis infection in sheep
Background and objectives: The possibility of manipulating the immune response in lambs to the gastrointestinal nematode Trichostrongylus colubriformis to reduce production losses associated with infection was investigated. ...
Functional diversity vs. monotony: The effect of a multiforage diet as opposed to a single forage diet on animal intake, performance, welfare, and urinary nitrogen excretion
(Oxford University Press on behalf of American Society of Animal Science, 2021-05)
The objective of this study was to determine the effect of offering animals a multiforage choice (MF) of fresh herbages on dry matter intake (DMI), live weight gain, and animal welfare, in comparison with a monotonous diet ...
