Abstract

During the course of a periodic epidemiological survey for leptospirosis of a herd of bulls at the University of Illinois Agricultural Research Center, Dixon Springs, a new leptospiral strain was isolated from the urine of a clinically healthy Hereford bull, no. 3055. The strain was found to be antigenically unrelated to known pathogenic () and “saprophytic” () serotypes. Phenotypically, it most closely resembled strains; however, in view of the reported distinct genetic characteristics of strain 3055, its species classification is not recommended at this time.
