A serological survey for brucellosis in buffalo (Syncerus caffer) in the Kruger National Park.

Abstract

A serological investigation was undertaken to determine the prevalence of brucellosis titres in buffalo in the Kruger National park. A total of 406 samples were collected over a period of one year. The rose bengal and the complement fixation tests were used in the investigation as these tests are routinely used for cattle sera and have proved to be reliable. In the females, 12.6% adult, 10.7% sub-adult and 3% juvenile animals reacted positively to the tests. In the males, 15.1% adults, 10.6% sub-adults and 5.3% juveniles were recorded as positive.
