The reliability of using carcass condemnation in abattoirs to determine the prevalence of Mycobacterium bovis in cattle



The reliability of using carcass condemnation in abattoirs to determine the prevalence of Mycobacterium bovis in cattle



Archivos de Medicina Veterinaria 29(2): 197-204



Samples of lymph nodes were taken from 248 animals from 6 abattoirs in the Province of Santa Fe, Argentina, which had been condemned because of tuberculous lesions. In 207 cases, only 1 sample was taken; in the other animals 2 lesions were sampled. Bacteriological examination detected M. bovis in 209 of 248 animals (84.3%). 229 samples were examined histopathologically (19 were not fixed correctly) and 203 (88.6%) were positive.
