Description
Trichomoniasis is a venereal disease of cattle characterized primarily by early fetal death and infertility, resulting in extended calving intervals. Distribution is probably worldwide.





The cattle parasite Tritrichomonas foetus

Additional information


The sexually-transmitted flagellate protozoan of cattle TRITRICHOMONAS FOETUS causes reproductive wastage through early pregnancy loss, pyometra, fetal maceration, infertility, and abortions. Bulls are asymptomatic but the organism can colonize the penis and preputial membranes making bulls the primary vector. Mature bulls are generally infected for life; most cows recover following a period of infertility although they occasionally carry infections into the next breeding season. Uncommon when there is widespread use of artificial insemination.
