AbstractBovine virus diarrhoea (BVD) and infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) viruses are commonly thought on clinical grounds to be widespread in the New Zealand cattle population, and records of virus isolation and serology from this laboratory support this assumption. To date, however, few reports have been published on the prevalence of these two diseases in New Zealand. Isolations of IBR virus have been reported by Webster and Manktelow (1959), Manktelow and Hansen (1961), and Fastier and Smith ( 1962), and of BVD virus by Jolly et al ( 1967). Sahsbury et al (1961) also reported possible BVD virus isolates, but these were not confirmed. There are only three reports on the prevalence of antibodies to IBR and BVD viruses
