Abstract

Sera were collected from dairy and beef cattle in 19 different states of Mexico. These sera were tested for bovine herpesvirus-1 (BHV-1), parainfluenza-3 virus (PIV-3), bovine rotavirus (BRV), bovine leukemia virus (BLV), bovine adenovirus-7 (BAV-7), bluetongue virus (BTV) and bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV). Seropositive rates for each virus for dairy cattle tested were 158/277(57.0%) for BHV-1,217/286(75.0%) for PIV-3,541/1498(36.1%) for BLV, 134/144(93.1%) for BRV, 39/90(43.3%) for BTV, 55/235(23.4%) for BAV-7 and 93/132(70.5%) for BVDV. The seropositive rates for each virus for beef cattle tested were 601/1154(52.0%) for BHV-1,830/1271(69.3%) for PIV-3,1053/1274(83.0%) for BRV, 482/771(62.5%) for BVDV, 51/1271(4.0%) for BLV, 50/110(45.5%) for BTV and 50/70(71.4%) for BAV-7. The positive rates for BVDV in goats were 16/80(20.0%).
