Title: Prevalence and strain identification of Coxiella burnetii on dairy goat farms and in associated wildlife
Author: Porty, Ariel; Jardine, Claire; Pearson, Talima; Menzies, Paula; Jones-Bitton, Andria; Schulte‐Hostedde, Albrecht
Abstract: Presentation Abstract: To control Coxiella burnetii in goats and lower risk to humans, we need to determine the role wildlife may play. While the genotyping results for this project are still pending, we know that wildlife on the farms and in nearby natural areas are infected with C. burnetii. The genotyping results will help us get one step closer in identifying the role that wildlife play in the transmission of C. burnetii. In the event that wildlife are infected with the same bacterial strain as the dairy goats then we will suggest extra farm bio-security to prevent future transmission between livestock and wildlife. Managing this disease on the farm is not only important for livestock and other farm animals, but also for the farm producers.
