Abstract

The diseases caused by hemoprotozoan parasites in cattle often result in economic losses. In Sri Lanka, previous studies found that the up-country wet zone, which is located in central Sri Lanka, was characterized by a high rate of Theileria orientalis and a low rate of Theileria annulata compared...
