4Ry, USDA, Texas A&M AgriLife to develop innovative spraying technology for cattle fever ticks

4Ry, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service and Texas A&M AgriLife Research have signed a collaborative research agreement to develop a means to more efficiently and effectively spray cattle and kill cattle fever ticks, according to a 4Ry Inc. announcement.

Cattle fever ticks are vectors of pathogens causing bovine babesiosis, also known as cattle tick fever, and are the focus of the U.S. Cattle Fever Tick Eradication Program.

Pete Teel, Ph.D., AgriLife Research entomologist, regents professor and interim department head, Department of Entomology, College Station, will lead the project and provide administrative guidance. Field testing will be conducted by AgriLife Research and USDA-ARS at the USDAARS Cattle Fever Tick Research Laboratory in Edinburg.

The project will adapt 4Ry’s Charge Injected Precision Spraying, ChIPS, for conductive fluids. Many cattle pesticides are water-based, which makes them conductive.

The Fisher County Community Fall Festival took place in Roby over the weekend, where people traveled in from neighboring towns to have a little fun, do a little trick or treating, play some games, eat plenty of food, meet up with old friends and make a few new ones.

Event coordinator and Fall Fest Committee President Jenna Posey said this year’s festival was bigger than last year and ran smoothly with help from people in neighboring communities all around. As additional business and volunteers are showing interest after this year’s event, Posey said the committee already has ideas for next year.

Posey said trick or treating involves a lot of driving nowadays and liked the idea of trunk or treating she knew many churches were hosting. She saw it as an opportunity to bring people together and provide a safe place where kids can have fun, show off their costumes, and still get Halloween candy.
