Seroprevalence of Brucellosis and Q-Fever in Southeast Ethiopian Pastoral Livestock

Seroprevalence of Brucellosis and Q-Fever in Southeast Ethiopian Pastoral Livestock

To assess seroprevalences of Brucellaand C. burnetiiin pastoral livestock in southeast Ethiopia, a cross-sectional study was carried out in three livestock species (cattle, camels and goats). The study was conducted from July 2008 to August 2010, and eight pastoral associations (PAs) from the selected districts were included in the study. Sera from a total of 1830 animals, comprising 862 cattle, 458 camels and 510 goats were screened initially with Rose Bengal plate test (RBPT) for Brucella. All RBPT positive and 25% of randomly selected negative sera were further tested by ELISA. These comprise a total of 460 animals (211 cattle, 102 camels and 147 goats).
