Twenty-thr of 1024 (2.25%) heads showed clinical sings of the disease. Five of 23 died and 12of23 were slau,ghoi Furthermore, one Bovine Papular Stornatitis (BPS) vinis was isolated. The vims was used to aerest the antigen for agar gel utipitanon (AGP) t for anti&xly prevalence investigation. The total of 2313 semm samp ot>flectd from 131 farms lccatl In 14 different counties in 1987 were tested by AGP pcxsitive reaction was obina{ on 457 sthum samples from 72 farms.
