(Note that these documents are for viewing purposes only and can’t be printed)
The Malelane Research Unit is situated in the beautiful Kaalrug Valley of the Mpumalanga Lowveld, 26 km from the southern border of the famous Kruger National Park. The main activities taking place at the research unit are the development and testing of new ecto and endoparasitic drugs. The pastures are naturally infested with ticks and the resident cattle herd is the ideal model for testing the activity and safety of these drugs. Ticks are also tested for resistance to the various ectoparasiticides and farmers are advised on which compounds to use. A tick management system has been developed to provide advice to farmers.
