Epidemiology of bovine trypanosomosis and associated risk factors in Chora District of Oromia region, Ethiopia

Bovine trypanosomosis is one of the most parsimoniously problematic diseases in influencing mammals like cattle and it is a grave haemoprotozoan disease triggered by different species of unicellular eurykaryotic parasite of the genus trypanosome. This study was conducted to assess the epidemiology of bovine trypanosomosis, and the influence of associated risk factors on cattle reared in Chora district of buno bedele zone. A blood sample was collected from a total of 401 cattle of age ranges from 1 to 6 years. The presence of parasites from sampled blood was examined using a method of buffy coat technique and a technique of giemsa-stained thin blood films was used to identify the existing trypanosome species in the study area. The Packed Cell Volume (PCV) of collected blood samples was determined using haematocrit. A total of 50 traps were deployed to study the entomological survey
