The aim of this study was to determine antibodies against the bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDv) in serum samples of adult goats, females and males, of intensive, semi-extensive and transhumant production systems, from 89 farmers of four provinces of the department of Lima: Huaura (n=196), Huaral (n=233), Canta (n=153) and Lima (n=172). The detection of neutralizing antibodies against the BVDv in serum samples (n=754) was done by the viral neutralization test. The results showed that 1.2% (9/754) of the samples had antibodies against the virus. Seroreactive samples were from transhumant goats from the provinces of Canta and Huaura.
