This study reports the sero-prevalence of viral infections in sheep in Peru. Serum samples were collected from 34 mature healthy rams located in 3 different geographic regions of the country (north, central and south). The sera were tested for antibodies to the following viruses: respiratory syncytial virus (RSV); parainfluenza 3 (PI-3) virus; bovine viral diarrhea/border disease (BVD/BD) virus; bovine herpesvirus 1 (BHV-1); bluetongue (BT) virus; ovine progressive pneumonia (OPP) virus; bovine leukosis virus (BLV). The serological studies showed that 47% were positive for RSV; 82% for PI-3; 3% for BVD/BD virus; 49% for BT virus; 13% for OPP virus. Antibodies were not detected to bovine herpesvirus 1 or to bovine leukosis virus. © 1984.
