Abstract:Tests were conducted to determine the attractiveness and/or repellency of Braham cattle to Haematobia irritans (L.). Three trials were run to compare fly numbers on cattle of different colors (black vs. white) and 5 levels of Brahman breeding. Although there were indications of effects from factors other than percent Braham breeding, as the level of Braham blood relationship increased an accompanying decrease in fly numbers occurred regardless of animal color.
