Abstract
Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia is a major militating factor against cattle production in the northern part of Nigeria. Eighty (80) sera samples were screened for CBPP from a herd of 120 Friesian cattle in Birnin-Kudu, Jigawa State using competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (c-ELISA) CIRAD version: P05410/02 antibody detection kit. Out of the 80 sera samples screened, 7 (8.75%, X2=0.1193, OR=0.9293) were seropositive to CBPP. More female 5 (8.93%) were seropositive for CBPP than the male counterparts 2 (8.33%) although there was no significant difference p>0.05. The animals that tested positive were advised to be culled while the seronegative ones were vaccinated with CBPP vaccine (strain T1/44) obtained from NVRI Vom. This investigation reveals that CBPP is present in exotic breed of cattle in Jigawa State. The need for strict surveillance and movement control to prevent further spread of the disease in the region is recommended.

Key words: CBPP, c-ELISA, Friesian cattle, Jigawa State
