Abstract

Bovine Tuberculosis (bTB) is endemic in most parts of China, with epidemics occurring in some parts of the country. However little is currently known about the epidemiology of the disease. This research describes the occurrence of bTB in four dairy farms in China. The true animal level prevalence varied from 0.0% (95% CI: 0.0, 0.0) to 59.5% (95% CI: 48.2, 70.0). The incidence rate highlighted the rapid transmission between animals in herds ranging from 0.03 (95% CI: 0.01, 0.05)/cow-month in a closed farm which culled IFN-? release assay testpositive animals to 2.69 (95% CI: 1.59, 3.50)/cow-month in a closed farm which culled animals positive to both the PPD skin test and IFN-? release assay.
