This investigation was carried out in dairy cattle from four rural settlements of Corumbá, MS, Brazil, in order to assess the seroprevalence of bovine herpesvirus 1 (BoHV-1), bluetongue virus (BTV), and Leptospira; and the prevalence was 50.9 per cent (179/352), 51.3 per cent (181/353), and 35.8 per cent (125/349), respectively. Association between frequency of seropositive animals and evaluated rural settlements (P<0.01) was found for Leptospira, and indicated the influence of environmental factors in bovine infection. Age was significantly related to BoHV-1 (P<0.001), BTV (P<0.001), and Leptospira infection (P<0.01), showing higher number of infection among older animals. Once the bovine herds were not vaccinated, the presence of seropositive animals indicated that these infections occurred in rural settlements herds of Corumbá assayed, and certainly induced economical loss.(AU)

This investigation was carried out in beef cattle (n=219), sheep (n=55), and pampas deer (Ozotoceros bezoarticus) (n=49) from Nhecolândia, sub region of Brazilian Pantanal in Mato Grosso do Sul State, Brazil. It was aimed to assess the seropositivity of these species to bluetongue virus (BTV) by agar gel immunodiffusion test. Seropositivity rates were 42.0% for cattle and 10.9% for sheep. The pampas deer showed to be all seronegative. In cattle, seropositivity to BTV significantly increased with age (P<0.001). These data, the favorable environmental conditions to development of BTV vectors, and the bovine reproductive disorders reported by farmers may indicate that BTV infection occurrs in herds of Brazilian Pantanal, and probably induces to economical losses.(AU)
