Abstract

In a pilot survey to compare the relative prevalence of three diseases in apparently healthy White Fulani Zebu (WFZ) cattle slaughtered in Nigeria, sera from 80 randomly selected animals with no significant gross lesions on ante mortem and post mortem inspection were examined for antibodies to Brucella abortus, Dermatophilus congolensis and bovine leukaemia virus. Of the samples screened, 5.0, 8.8 and 2.0% showed serological evidence for brucellosis, cutaneous streptothricosis and bovine leukosis respectively.
