Abstract:

Goatpox and Sheeppox are highly contagious, trans-boundary viral diseases of sheep and goats and are economically important causing high morbidity and mortality along with huge production loses. The disease was recorded for the first time from Assam in 2016 with high morbidity and mortality. No systematic vaccination policies are being followed so far against this disease. Therefore, the present study was undertaken to study the sero-prevalence of goatpox in goat population of Assam. Out of 220 serum samples collected from different parts of Assam, 157 (71.36%) were found positive for goatpox antibody by Indirect ELISA. The difference in prevalence rates among the various districts was statistically significant (p<0.05). However, the difference in prevalence rates between young and adult animals and male and female animals were statistically not significant (p>0.05). The present study concluded that goatpox infection is endemic in Assam indicated by high sero-positivity (71.36%).
