Abstract:

244 serum samples from unorganized sector and 122 serum samples from organized sector were collected from apparently healthy goats of different age and sex from North Western agroclimatic zone of Tamilnadu (India) and were screened for Mycoplasmal antibodies by employing Indirect Enzyme linked Immunosorbent Assay. Sixty two out of 244 serum samples from unorganized goat farms in five districts were found positive which indicating overall seroprevalence of 25.40. Out of 122 serum samples from organized goat farms 35 samples were positive for Mycoplasma infection with percent positivity of 28.68. The Indirect Enzyme linked Immunosorbent assay for Mycoplasmal antibodies detection was found to be simple, reliable with having high sensitivity and specificity.
