Colibacillosis is considered as one of the most important problems faced in livestock production, causing great economic losses. Calves become exposed to pathogenic E. coli in the environment when other infected or carrier calves and cows shed the bacteria in the feces. Diagnosing of E. coli infection in calves depends on an accurate history, clinical signs, culture of internal organs for bacteria, and serotyping of the organism. This disease requires an immediate response, centered on…

Studies on Calf Diarrhoea in Mozambique: Prevalence of Bacterial Pathogens
The overall prevalence of diarrhoea was low, but 2 farms had a higher prevalence that could be due to an outbreak situation, and Salmonella did not seem to be associated with diarrhoe a, and Campylobacter jejuni was common at one of the 2 diarrhoeal farms.
