Bovine brucellosis is a highly contagious disease caused by Brucella abortus that causes high rates of morbidity, abortion, and lifetime sterility in cattle resulting in large economic losses. Cattle often acquire B. abortus through contact with infected vaginal discharges and birth products (e.g., placenta, fetus, fetal fluids). Eight B. abortus biovars (1-7, 9), are currently recognized and diagnosis is by serology testing using the Brucella antigen tests (agglutination assay), ELISA, or Coombs tests.
