Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of herbal, homeopathic and allopathic treatments for parasites in beef heifers during two experimental cycles of 318 and 313 days. Treatments: NC -negative control (untreated); HH -treated with homeopathic preparation Homeo bovis Parasitário  ; PC -(positive control) -treated with 10% moxidectina  and an acaricide formulation of cypermethrin, chlorpyrifos and piperonyl butoxide  ; HF -treated with homeopathic preparation Fator C&MC  ; and FN -treated with … Show more

“…It is therefore difficult to compare our results with those of studies that used products also active against ectoparasites (Bianchin et al, 2007;Catto et al, 2009;Soutello, 2001). For instance, Catto et al (2013) reported that Brangus heifers treated with moxidectin and an acaricide showed lower FECs and tick infestations than untreated animals or animals treated with alternative drugs, which resulted in heifers 22 to 30 kg heavier in the treated group. Hence, in those experiments, the benefits in body weight gain may have resulted from the control of both endo-and ectoparasites.…”

“…Later, in Central Brazil, young treated cattle showed higher gains in body weight than untreated controls in the states of Mato Grosso do Sul (Bianchin et al, 1995(Bianchin et al, , 2007Borges et al, 2013;Catto et al, 2013;Heckler et al, 2016), Minas Gerais (Furlong et al, 1993;Guimarães et al, 2000;Lima et al, 1985;1997), and São Paulo (Oliveira & Freitas, 1998;Soutello, 2001). In contrast, no difference was found between treated and untreated cattle in the Pantanal region of Mato Grosso do Sul (Catto & Furlong, 1982;Catto et al, 1993;Sereno et al, 2000) and in São Paulo (Santos et al, 1977).…”
