Neospora caninum has been shown to be an important cause of abortion in cattle worldwide. Despite the considerable attention this parasite has attracted globally, and Australis's status as a major beef producer, little is known about the epidemology of N caninum in Australian beef herds. The only previous report of N caninum in Australian beef cattle was from a diagonostic laboratory report of the aetiological cause of abortion in cattle in northern New South Wales, which found that 41% of all protozoal abortions diagnosed (presumably due to No caninum infection) occurred in beef herds. The present study aimed to define the age-specific prevalence of antibodies to N caninum in central Queensland beef herds.
