Studies on infectious infertility and abortion incidences of bovine brucellosis in kashmir india

Studies on infectious infertility and abortion incidences of bovine brucellosis in kashmir india

Indian Veterinary Medical Journal 10(3): 137-140

The present studies were carried out to ascertain the incidence of bovine brucellosis in Kashmir Valley during the last four years 1979-83, on the basis of milking test (MRT) and Sero-agglutination test (SAT) conducted on 3386 milk samples and 2104 sera samples. During this period, the overall incidence of brucellosis was 1.71% and 1.28% on the basis of MRT and SAT, respectively. Similar studies conducted about a decade ago (1968-71) revealed corresponding percent incidence of 2.3% and 2.6%, respectively. Brucellosis in Kashmir is restricted to exotic and cross-bred animals in organised farms only. It appears not to have established foci in local cattle. The cattle population of mountainous and land locked areas are free from this infection as evidenced by the present studies.
