   On March 30, the Qinghai Provincial Department of Science and Technology organized experts to evaluate the results of the”Yak Parasitic Disease Epidemiology and Sustainable Control Technology Research” project undertaken by the College of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Sciences of Qinghai University. The expert team believes that the project has ascertained the prevalence of main parasitic diseases in yak, innovated low-residue prevention and control technology, strengthened the research on parasitic diseases in yak, and improved the control level of parasitic diseases, so as to ensure the healthy and sustainable development of the yak breeding industry on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Provide technical support.
   The project conducted research on the epidemiology and control methods of yak parasitic diseases, and ascertained the pathogen species, geographic distribution and epidemic status of Qinghai yak parasitic diseases. 116 species of parasites were detected from the yak and the dominant species Established yak parasite germplasm resource information database; established yak skin myiasis micro-drug control technology, screened high-efficiency and low-residue control drugs, developed yak parasitic disease drug preparations; selected eprinomectin Injection, innovated high-efficiency and low-residue technology for yak parasitic diseases; formulated the”Technical Specifications for the Prevention and Control of Parasitic Diseases in Yak Healthy Breeding” and”Technical Specifications for the Prevention and Control of Canine Parasitic Diseases in Tibetan Areas”, and demonstrated its application in more than 250,000 yaks for deworming The effect is more than 96%. In the technical demonstration herd, yaks increased their weight or lost their live weight by 5.12kg, increased milk production by 10%, and increased the survival rate of young cattle by 2.6%.
