Vet World. 2012; 5(3): 166-168

Neonatal diarrhoea is one of the most important conditions of calves, associated with morbidity and mortalities. Diarrhoeal diseases have an adverse effect on calf health status, survival and productive performances. Corona virus is one of the etiological agents responsible for calf diarrhea worldwide. However there is paucity of literature stating the disease status in India. The present study was carried out to determine the prevalence of corona virus infection among cow calves in Mathura and adjacent regions. During the present study 63 diarrhoeic stool samples collected from cow calves were screened for corona virus. Of the 63 diarrhoeic samples 3 samples (4.76%) were found to be positive for corona virus by ELISA.
