A Total of 173 streptococci isolated from 536 dairy cattle in Gyeonggi Province identified by Lancefield serological reaction and other biological properties. Antibiotics sensitivity test was also examined and the results obtained were as follows: 1. A total of 173 isolates of 167 strains (96.5%) were reacted with group A,B,C,D,E and G antisera. 2. Of the 167 positive strains, 75 strains were identified to Streptooccus uberis, 56 to Streptococcus agalactiage and 26 to Streptococcus dysgactiae, respectively. Also, Sreptococcus pyogenes, group D and group G streptococci were rarely isolated. 3. In results of antibiotic sensitivity tests, the most isolates were sensitive to leucomycin and erythromycin but less sensitive to streptomycin. and kanamycin.
