Animals in cattle farm M and sheep farm L were injected with a similar volume of adjuvant/saline alone as control. Injections were done intramuscularly in the back of the animals using a ml syringe and an 18G needle. Cattle in vaccinated and control farms were vaccinated or injected with adjuvant/saline on March 19 th and April 20 th, Cited by: prevention, quarantine of tick-infested cattle, and tick control on cattle and deer.

Tick vaccines have been proposed as a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative for tick control. Vaccination with the candidate tick protective antigen, Subolesin (SUB), has been shown experimentally to be effective in controlling vector Cited by: A total of cattle and shelters, from two provinces (Elazig and Malatya) endemic for tropical theileriosis in the east of Turkey, were studied for .
