Reproductive diseases are one of the most important problems in the pigs reared under scavenging system and are considered as one of the most threatening problem in indigenous pig production. A total of 58 vaginal swab samples were collected from indigenous pigs from different districts of Tamil Nadu. Collected samples were inoculated, incubated and cultured for the common microflora found in the reproductive tract of indigenous pigs. Twenty four samples were positive for Streptococcus sp., twenty samples were positive for E. coli sp., eleven samples were positive for Staphylococcus sp., and two samples for Pseudomonas sp. and one sample showed colonies similar to Brucella sp.

Keywords: Microflora, Reproductive tract, Indigenous pigs, Tamil Nadu.
