Abstract

One hundred and nine breeding bulls were examined during the period November 1992 to June 1993 on farms in south west Scotland for evidence of infectious diseases associated with breeding. Preputial washings were collected to screen for Campylobacter fetus venerialis, together with serial blood samples to assess their seroprevalence to Bovine Virus Diarrhoea virus (BVDv),Bovine Herpes Virus-1 (BHV-1), Leptospira hardjo and Bovine Herpes Virus-4(BHV-4). The possible impact of natural mating on the epidemiology of these diseases is described. Evidence of infections with Campylobacter fetus and BVH-4 were not found in this sample. The overall seroprevalence to BVDv was 78%, for BHV-1 49%, and L. hardjo 27% at titres of greater than or equalto 1/400. This study shows that bulls may be responsible for the introduction and dissemination of these diseases when moved from farm to farm as part of normal cattle breeding in this area. Young unproven bulls may be particularly susceptible to endemic diseases associated with lowered reproductive performance.
