Latest NCBA Beltway Beef Podcast Episode: NCBA Educates Producers on Asian Longhorned Tick

Mon, 25 Jul 2022 08:59:42 CDT

Latest NCBA Beltway Beef Podcast Episode: NCBA Educates Producers on Asian Longhorned Tick Each week, Beltway Beef brings you the latest policy news affecting the U.S. cattle and beef industry. Hear from subject-matter experts, producers, and industry leaders on the topics that impact the business viability of farms and ranches across the country.

On this episode, NCBA’s Chief Veterinarian Dr. Kathy Simmons joins to discuss the Asian Longhorned Tick, an extremely aggressive tick that can cause stress and severe blood loss in cattle. The tick also can transmit diseases to cattle such as bovine Theileriosis, a disease that causes anemia, failure to grow (ill-thrift), persistent infection, reproductive problems, and in some cases, death. The tick is extremely mobile, reproduces quickly, and is smaller than a sesame seed, making it difficult to detect. NCBA is partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to host a virtual symposium on managing this tick and the diseases it carries. For more information on that event, please visit ncba.org.
