Neospora caninum


Neospora caninum is a protozoa which causes abortions, usually around 3-8 months gestation or birth of infected calves. There is a huge economic impact on farms through losses due to abortion, premature culling, reduced milk yield and reduced post weaning weight of calves. Cattle that are infected with Neospora are 3-7 times more likely to abort than those not infected.
