Abstract

This survey was carried out to investigate the seroprevalence of antibodies to Neospora caninum in Korean native cattle (KNC) raised in Kangwon province in Korea. A total of 867 sera collected from KNC were tested for N. caninum antibodies using an indirect immunofluorescent antibody test (IFAT). One hundred and fifty five (17.9%) KNC were positive by IFAT. Seroprevalence of cows was 19.6% (44/224) and seroprevalence of boars was 17.3% (111/643). Among the seroprevalences of cattle according to the raised areas, five counties or cities, Hwacheon was 33.3% (1/3), Wonju was 30.8% (4/13), Chuncheon was 25.8% (24/93), Hongcheon 18.3% (22/120) and Wheongsung was 16.6%(104/628). It was proved that KNC raised in Kangwon provinces exposed extensively and seriously to N. caninum.
