Abstract:

The present study was conducted with the aim to record seroprevalence and microbiological studies in serum and milk samples and vaginal swabs respectively, of brucellosis in goats. A total of 110 serum samples, 13 milk samples and 50 vaginal swabs were collected randomly from various organized and unorganized goat farms, regardless of breed and age (1year-9 years) of goats. Out of total 110 serum samples examined, 06 (05.45%) and 04 (03.63%) samples were found to be positive by Rose Bengal Plate Test and Standard Tube Agglutination Test, respectively. Out of 13 milk samples 04 (30.76%) were found positive by Milk Ring Test. Vaginal swabs were inoculated for isolation and identification of Brucella organisms in selective media. Three isolates (06.66%) were obtained and confirmed as Brucella spp by morphological and biochemical characters. The results show the occurrence of brucellosis in the studied area and are of public health significance.
