Serological study of the occurrence of L. hardjo in sheep in The Netherlands



Serological study of the occurrence of L. hardjo in sheep in The Netherlands



Tijdschrift Voor Diergeneeskunde 118(13): 433-435



Sheep (3918) from 137 farms in the regions of North-, West- and Mid-Netherlands and Gelderland were serologically investigated for the presence of antibodies against Leptospira hardjo. Antibodies were detected in 3.3% of the sheep. There were large regional differences with respect to both the percentage of positive sheep and the percentage of positive flocks. All sera from sheep in Gelderland were negative. In West- en Mid-Netherlands there were 0.9 and 6.5% positive sera, respectively, and 19.4 and 32.7% positive flocks. The percentage of positive sheep per positive flocks varied from 1 tot 51.6. Serological positive sheep were from farms with and without cattle. On farms with cattle, there was no clear relationship between serologically sheep and the presence of hardjo antibodies in cattle. It thus seems plausible that sheep can be infected with hardjo independently of cattle.
