Abstract:

Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease with epidemiological global effect. It has been found to affect the cattle industry worldwide and India is not an exception to it. The current sero survey was carried to illuminate the status of bovine brucellosis in an organised dairy farm from Nasik with past history of abortions. Total of 65 serum samples were collected from cattle and tested for the presence of brucella antibodies using Rose Bengal Plate Test (RBPT), Standard Tube Agglutination Test(STAT) and Indirect Enzyme Linked Immnuno-Sorbent assay(I-ELISA).Out of 65 samples, 25(38.4%) sera were positive by RBPT, and 19(29.2%) for STAT. Screening by Indirect ELISA revealed that26samples (40.0%) were positive for brucellosis. Overall, seroprevalence in the herd was found to be 23(35.3%).The present study highlights the importance of study of seroprevalence in cattle population to eliminate the economic loss among farmers and raise awareness to avoid zoonoses caused by brucella infection.
