Brucellosis is an endemic problem in North Gujarat. Though the bull is not directly transmitting the disease from one infected buffalo to another, infected bull may infect clean animals hence it has great significance in control programme. The prevalence of brucellosis in buffalo bulls used for natural service in rural areas of Mehsana milk shed area, Gujarat was studied using the rose bengal presipitation test (RBPT) and indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (i- ELISA). The seroprevalence was found to be 0.95 percent and 2.85 percent by RBPT and i- ELISA, respectively.
