Analysis of the Inci¬dence of Tuberculosis in Cattle

  • Febres Castro


 Beyond food producing animals, mainly cattle, tuberculosis is known to have a wide range of hosts. Although the incidence of the disease in the industrially advanced countries has declined dramatically since the completion of the eradication programmes, the infection is considered among serious epizootic diseases which are subject to mandatory an­nouncement and obligatory eradication. The purpose of this research work was to analyse the inci­dence of bovine tuberculosis, and evaluate the potential risk of this disease in the study countries.
