Abstract

, a worldwide protozoan parasite, is one of the most common causes of diarrhoea in humans and animals. The aim of the present study was to determine species/genotypes in pre-weaned calves in Shaanxi Province using PCR and sequencing based on the small subunit rRNA gene. A total of 258 faecal samples were collected from pre-weaned calves in 19 different farms from six areas in Shaanxi Province, north-western China. infection was detected in 14 of 19 farms (73.7 %), with a total prevalence of 20.2 % (52/258). Both dairy and Qinchuan (beef) cattle were found with infection. Three species, namely ( = 26), ( = 14) and ( = 12), were detected in pre-weaned calves in Shaanxi Province, with (in 12 farms) identified as the most common species on cattle farms. Two additional and previously unknown genotypes, CRTypes III and IV, were observed in the present study. However, the zoonotic species, , was not detected in this study, which suggested a low zoonotic potential in -infected pre-weaned calves in this province.
