Vijay Sharma, HK Sharma, Subha Ganguly, Sindhu Berian and MA Malik

A study was conducted to determine the prevalence of Brucellosis in goats in and around border areas of Jammu, J&K, India using different serological tests viz., RBPT, STAT and I-ELISA. A total of 350 serum samples from goats were tested by RBPT, STAT and I-ELISA. Overall sero-prevalence of 1.14% was recorded in goats. Higher prevalence rates in 6-9 yr age group in goats (1.42%, 2.85% and 8.57%) were obtained by RBPT, STAT and I-ELISA, respectively. Goats of unorganized sector observed higher prevalence compared to organized sector, whereas sex-wise the does had higher prevalence than bucks. Upon odd ratio analysis in goats, 1-2 yr age group of animals was most susceptible.
