Abstract

Following the death of more than 250 goats in one herd of 800 goats, imported from Australia, an epidemiological investigation was undertaken to determine the probable aetiology of this apprently mysterious disease. The syndrome was characterized by severe anemia(Hematocrit <20% ; normal range 24 to 48). All the affected animals were imported from Australia and all the motalities occurred during the period from September to November, 1992 Giemsa stain, acridine orange and indirect immunoflourescence tests were utilized in a survey involving 239 goats reared in Chonbuk Province. The positivity rates by acridine orange for anaplasmosis or piroplasmosis were 60.8% and 66.2% for imported and indigenous breeds respectively. It is tenatively concluded that the probable cause of death was anaplasmosis.
