Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to determine the prevalence of brucellosis in small and large ruminants in state of Chhattisgarh, India. A total of 1050 sera samples from cattle (n=750), buffaloes (n=95), goats (n= 170) and sheep (n=35) were collected and tested for the presence of anti-brucella antibodies by indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (I- ELISA) kits. The overall prevalence of brucellosis in cattle, buffaloes, goats and sheep was found 12.13%, 20%, 11.17% and 5.71 %, respectively. In case of large ruminants statistically significant difference (P≤0.05) in seroprevalence was observed for different district and, between cattle and buffaloes. However, in case of small ruminants statistically non-significant difference (P≥0.05) in seroprevalence was observed between districts, species and sex. The result of the study pointed out a major impact on health and productivity of animal population, and thus poses a greater risk for occupational transfer of zoonotic brucellosis to the human population.
