Livestock mortality, treatment costs, abortion, reduced production, discarded milk, and reduced consumer confidence all contribute to the cost of Salmonella to cattle industries. Paratuberculosis in domestic livestock may entail significant economic losses due to several factors, such as reduced production, premature culling, and veterinary costs. In the United States, paratuberculosis is of growing concern to the cattle industry because the presence of the disease impacts international marketing of cattle and cattle products, which causes economic losses to producers.

Q (Query) fever is an ubiquitous zoonosis that is found throughout the world (apart from New Zealand). It is caused by Coxiella burnetii, an obligate intracellular bacterium that can infect many different animal species, including ruminants, dogs, cats, birds, and arthropods as well as humans. In ruminants (which are believed to be the main reservoir for human infection), the disease is mainly associated with reproductive dysfunction. It usually remains asymptomatic and is not usually screened for unless an animal has aborted several times or shows reproductive problems.
paratuberculosis, in feces or in intestinal tissues postmortem. The identification of subclinical disease in animals, which can shed the organism over long periods and thus be the source of infection for other members of a herd, is more difficult.
- Leptospirosis is considered to be zoonotic, and can be transmitted to humans if a person comes in contact with water or soil that has been contaminated by urine or body fluids of an infected animal.
- Increasing scientific evidence indicates that there is a link between paratuberculosis in dairy herds and Crohn’s disease in humans.
- Paratuberculosis in domestic livestock may entail significant economic losses due to several factors, such as reduced production, premature culling, and veterinary costs.
- Infection can cause winter dysentery in adult animals, as well as calf enteritis and enzootic pneumonia complex in calves.
Pasteurella multocida , Mannhemia haemolytica, and histophilus somni are important causes of bacterial pneumoniae. When a calf’s immune function is impaired by stress or diseases such as bovine rhinotracheitis virus (IBR), parainfluenza virus (PI-3), or bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV), these bacterias can invade and cause disease. The disease is caused by Tritrichomonas foetus (T foetus) a small, motile protozoan that lives in the reproductive tract of cows and the penis sheath of bulls. The disease organism is transferred to a cow’s vagina from the bull during breeding and causes infection as it migrates to the uterus resulting in a white sticky discharge from the vulva of the infected cows.
The virus is mainly present in the lower airways (the lobes of the lungs), where it damages ciliated epithelial cells that normally protect the lung against microbial invasion. RSV infection often leads to secondary bacterial infection, notably with Pasteurella haemolytica and Corynebacterium pyogenes.
Australia has a National Johne’s Disease Control Program (NJDCP) that aims to reduce the spread and the impact of Johne’s disease. It is a cooperative program involving Australian livestock industries, government, and the veterinary profession. Animal Health Australia manages the program on behalf of these key stakeholders. Paratuberculosis, also known as Johne’s disease, is caused by the presence of Myobacterium avium spp.
The bacterium can be spread from animals to humans through aerosols, or through the consumption of unpasteurized milk or dairy products from infected cows. The diseases are reported worldwide, with BSE found most frequently in Europe and CWD being most prevalent in North America.
Bovine genital campylobacteriosis is a notifiable disease (2012 OIE List) and is considered to have socio-economic implications for public health and, in particular, international trade in animals and products of animal origin. Brucellosis is a major public and animal health problem in many regions of the world. Although it rarely kills infected animals, considering the economic damage the disease can cause, brucellosis is one of the most serious livestock diseases worldwide.
