Dried Oregano Leaves Versus Neomycin in Treating Newborn Calves with Colibacillosis
Neomycin is known to be a very effective antibiotic in newborn calves with colibacillosis. Oregano leaves seem a really surprising alternative - and as this study shows, it is as effective in the treatment of colibacillosis as neomycin.

Treatment with neomycin (as a positive control) and dried oregano leaves on mortality, number of days scouring and severity of scours due to Escherichia coli were examined in 30 Holstein calves.

Calves were assigned to one of the treatments following clinical signs of diarrhoea (i.e. faecal score >2), and treated either with an oral solution of neomycin sulphate, to provide 10 mg neomycin sulphate per kg calf body weight per 24 h, or dried oregano leaves, to provide 10 mg oregano essential oil per kg calf body weight per 24 h.

The number of scouring days, severity of scouring and mortality rates were similar between the treatments.

This study indicates that dried oregano leaves administered as an oral solution to calves with diarrhoea may be as effective in the treatment of colibacillosis as neomycin.

The myostatin gene and its relevance to livestock animalsmembers
Myostatin, also known as growth differentiation factor 8, a member of the transforming growth factor‐beta super‐family, is a negative regulator of muscle development. Myostatin acts at key points during pre‐ and post‐natal life of amniotes that ultimately determine the overall muscle mass of an animal. A fascinating summary about the current an overview of mechanisms of action and its potential relevance in livestock animals.
