Theileria annulata isolates from cattle in different places in Turkey (Saroba, Akdere, Mamak, Eryaman, Huseyingazi, Girmec and Alacaoren in Ankara) were tested for virulence in Holstein calves. Seven of 17 calves were each inoculated with one of the 7 fresh Theileria annulata blood stabilates isolated from the places mentioned above, at a dose of 10 ml per animal. Another 7 calves were subcutaneously inoculated with T. annulata Saroba tick stabilate, at a dose equivalent to 4 ticks per animal.
