Abstract

Bovine listeriosis is a sporadie bacterial infection most commonly manifested by encephalitis or meningoencephalitis in adult animals. Cattle fed poorly fermented haylage or corn silage are at increased risk. Mortality is high without early antibiotic and supportive therapy. Listeria monocytogenes can affect many species and is a public health concern.
