birth to weaning kid traits from a complete diallel of boer, kiko, and spanish meat goat breeds semi-intensively managed on humid subtropical pasture.boer, kiko, and spanish meat goats were semi-intensively managed in a complete 3-breed diallel mating scheme to evaluate genetic effects on preweaning kid performance. over a 6-yr period, 1,543 kids were born in march and may with 1,173 kid raised by their dams (i.e., retained) to weaning at 3 mo of age. march-born kids were lighter (p < 0.01) at birth, but had greater (p < 0.01) preweaning adg and survival rates and heavier (p < 0.01) weaning weights than may-born kids. for birth weight, the di ...201121498653
orf virus infection in humans--new york, illinois, california, and tennessee, 2004-2005.orf virus is a zoonotic parapoxvirus endemic to most countries in the world and is principally associated with small ruminants (e.g., sheep and goats). human orf infections appear as ulcerative skin lesions after contact with an infected animal or contaminated fomite. this report summarizes the epidemiologic and laboratory investigations of four sporadic cases of human orf infection, emphasizing the temporal association between human lesions and skin trauma or recent flock vaccination with live ...200616437055
prevalence of toxoplasma gondii antibodies in nine populations of dairy goats: compared titers using modified direct agglutination and indirect hemagglutination.in a convenience survey of dairy goats on 9 farms in tennessee, kentucky, and georgia, 54 of 99 females were positive for antibodies to toxoplasma gondii as measured by the indirect hemagglutination test (iha). two of 9 males were also positive. positive goats were found on all farms. the percentage of positive does increased from 55% to 65% when the sera were titered a second time by modified direct agglutination (mdat). this difference was not statistically significant, indicating that both ih ...19902299530
q fever--california, georgia, pennsylvania, and tennessee, 2000-2001.q fever is a zoonotic disease caused by the bacterium coxiella burnetii. the most common reservoirs are domesticated ruminants, primarily cattle, sheep, and goats. humans acquire q fever typically by inhaling aerosols or contaminated dusts derived from infected animals or animal products. its highly infectious nature and aerosol route of transmission make c. burnetii a possible agent of bioterrorism. although up to 60% of initial infections are asymptomatic, acute disease can manifest as a relat ...200212403408
