Jergefa, T.; Kelay, B.; Bekana, M; Teshale, S.; Kindahl, Hans


Logistic regression analysis revealed that the breed of cattle and the method of disposing of aborted foetuses and foetal membranes had a statistically significant effect on individual animal seroprevalence (p < 0.05). In lowland areas, the breed (p < 0.05), animal management system (p < 0.05), mating method <0.05), herd size (p < 0.05) and source of replacement stock (p < 0.05) all had significant effects on individual animal seroprevalence.
