Is it just the Anaplasmosis marginale organism that is to be found in the US and transmitted by the Rhipicephalus decoloratus blue tick?
Is there not R.microplus to be found, transmitting A. centrale? My question is, the illness in both forms will eventually with climate change and what was with it, become endemic to the US States as mentioned. By accepting it as a fact en implementing a system to create natural resistance to the illness via innocculation and early exposure is the best preventative strategy for livestock producers. You are also referring only to anaplasmosis or gallsickness in the single form of A.marginale, but what about redwater, also transmitted by the the same tick?
OK, given, if R.microplus is not to be found in these areas, the organism will not be found. My concern is, reading the stats given, that the cattle producers are not well informed of the fururistic dangers they are facing and there is no Plan of Action in preventative actions in one of the greatest cattle producing countries in the world.
It is facinating! It cannot be true!
