Winter dysentery in adult dairy cattle: detection of coronavirus in the faeces



Winter dysentery in adult dairy cattle: detection of coronavirus in the faeces



Veterinary Record 123(11): 300-301



In October and November 1987 an outbreak of winter dysentery affected a closed dairy herd in Ohio, USA. Profuse diarrhoea lasting 3-5 days (2 weeks in one cow) affected 20 (14.7%) of 136 lactating cows. Food intake decreased and daily milk production in the herd fell by 5%. Blood and faecal samples collected from 9 sick and 5 clinically normal cows were negative for Escherichia coli, salmonellae, cryptosporidia, coccidia and bovine diarrhoea virus.
