A cross-sectional study was conducted on 378 households, owning 524 head of cattle, to determine the prevalence of bovine tuberculosis (TB) and assess its public health implications. Stratified systematic sampling and a questionnaire were used, in addition to the comparative intradermal tuberculin test, mycobacterial culture and biochemical and drug susceptibility tests. Using a confidence interval (CI) of 95%, the herd and animal prevalences were 15% (11.4%, 18.6%) and 11% (8.32%, 13.68…

Assessment of Bovine Tuberculosis and Its Risk Factors in Cattle and Humans, at and around Dilla Town, Southern Ethiopia
TLDR
Despite awareness rising of cattle owners about BTB and its transmission, and the zoonotic implication of BTB is of extreme importance for effective implementation of TB control measures, the herd prevalence of bovine tuberculosis (BTB) varied significantly among herd size and management conditions.
Prevalence of bovine tuberculosis and assessment of Cattle owners awareness on its public health implication in and around Mekelle, Northern Ethiopia
TLDR
Poor awareness of cattle owners on BTB and its transmission is revealed and the study suggests that the prevalence of BTB in the study area is moderate and strong tuberculoid like lesions found from CIDT tested slaughtered animals.
Prevalence of Bovine Tuberculosis in and Around Nekemte Town Western Oromia, Ethiopia
The study conducted from January to June, 2014 with aim of determining prevalence of bovine tuberculosis and its associated risk factors in and around Nekemte town of western Oromia, Ethiopia. Bovine
Bovine tuberculosis and its risk factors among dairy cattle herds in and around Bahir Dar City, Northwest Ethiopia
TLDR
Overall low prevalence of BTB in dairy cattle in the study area is revealed, however, comparatively higher proportion of skin reactors recorded at upgraded breeds and intensive dairy herds warrants the need for the designing of practically acceptable control strategy.
A cross-sectional study on bovine tuberculosis in Hawassa town and its surroundings, Southern Ethiopia
TLDR
A cross-sectional study conducted in Hawassa town and its surroundings from October 2007 to May 2008 revealed the importance of BTB in the study area in particular and the region in general.
Status of bovine tuberculosis and its zoonotic implications in Borana zone, Southern Ethiopia
TLDR
From this, there should be detail awareness of communities on BTB, its zoonotic importance, and the need of further investigation to develop control and prevention strategies according to the pastoral settings.
Low prevalence of bovine tuberculosis in Somali pastoral livestock, southeast Ethiopia
TLDR
The prevalence of bovine tuberculosis was low in Somali pastoral livestock in general and in camels and goats in particular and the high proportion of camel reactors to avian PPD needs further investigation of its impact on camel production.
Prevalence of bovine tuberculosis in pastoral cattle herds in the Oromia region, southern Ethiopia
TLDR
In order to investigate the public health risks and the epidemiological importance of BTB in the area, it is recommended to include other livestock species (camels and goats) as well as humans in future studies.
Preliminary Study on the Prevalence of Bovine Tuberculosis and Risk Factors among Pastoralists in Gombe State, North Eastern Nigeria
TLDR
A cross-sectional study conducted in GombeState (North- eastern, Nigeria) from March, 2011 to April 2013 to estimate the prevalence of bovine tuberculosis (BTB) based on single caudal intradermal tuberculin test (SCITT), questionnaire and an abattoirs survey found that 70% (175 out of 250) of the respondents had knowledge of the existence of the disease but did not know the zoonotic implication.
Prevalence and risk factors of bovine tuberculosis in dairy cattle farms in Egypt
TLDR
The prevalence high in herds with poor management condition, raised different species in the same facility, had previous history of BTB infection and purchased new animals is high and Holstein breed, 3-6 years age, kept in high density and located in middelta district were at higher risk to be reactor to comparative intradermal tuberculin (CIDT) test.

Risk Factors Associated with the Occurrence of Bovine Tuberculosis in Cattle in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania
TLDR
Older cattle were more affected by the disease than yearlings and calves and the castrated bulls, often used for draught power, were more frequently affected than the entire bulls, mainly used for breeding.
Isolation of Mycobacterium species from raw milk of pastoral cattle of the Southern Highlands of Tanzania
TLDR
Although the number of M. bovis positive samples was low, the habit of pooling milk may still pose great public health dangers to milk consumers in this part of the world, and isolation of atypical mycobacteria should also be considered to be a danger to human health in countries such as Tanzania.

Field comparison of the interferon-gamma assay and the intradermal tuberculin test for the diagnosis of bovine tuberculosis.
TLDR
The superior sensitivity of the IFN-gamma assay and the ability to adjust the system depending on the task involved, will provide the Australian Tuberculosis Eradication Campaign with a valuable additional test to enable it to accomplish its goals.
Crossbred dairy cattle productivity in Arsi region, Ethiopia
TLDR
Major points to emerge concerning overall productivity were the clear superiority of all crossbreds over the indigenous breed groups; the similarity in performance of the 75% Bos taurus and the 50% BosTaurus; and the major advanlages of calving in the wet season compared with the rest of the year.
