Occurrence of abortions and seroprevalence of brucellosis in goats and sheep

Occurrence of abortions and seroprevalence of brucellosis in goats and sheep

Small Ruminant Research 14(2): 161-165

Occurrence of abortions, still births and seroprevalence of brucellosis were studied in native, unvaccinated and organised flocks of goats (Barbari, Jamunapari, Sirohi, Kutchi, Jakharana, and Marwari) and sheep (Muzaffamagri) with abortion problems during the period from 1985 to 1990. In 6 years, 8.4% lambs and 13.4% kids were lost due to abortions and still births. Incidence of abortions were recorded as 12.3% and 6.8% and still births 1.0% and 1.6% in goats and sheep, respectively. Serologically, 0.6% goats and 3.6% sheep were found to be positive for brucellosis by standard tube agglutination test (SAT). The regular screening of the flocks for Brucellosis and elimination of positive cases partially helped to lower the incidence of Brucellosis in these flocks.
