BACKGROUND Clostridium chauvoei causes blackleg, an acute disease associated with high mortality in ruminants. The apparent primary port of entry is oral, during grazing on pasture contaminated by spores. Cases of blackleg can occur year after year on contaminated pastures. A method to determine the prevalence of C. chauvoei spores on pasture would be useful.The standard method for C. chauvoei detection is culture and biochemical identification, which requires a pure culture. In most muscle… CONTINUE READING
