Abstract

Serum samples from white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in Iowa were checked for various disease antibodies from 1959 through 1963. Leptospirosis antibodies were found in 9.5% of 369 sera checked. L. grippotyphosa (3.9%) L. pomona (3.6%) and L. autumnalis (2.8%) were found most frequently. L. ballum, L. hardjo, L. sejroe, and L. autralis were also noted. No evidence of brucellosis was found in 231 sera checked. Evidence for western or California strains of encephalitis was noted. Anaplasmosis was also present. Johne's disease antibodies were not found in a sample of deer from western Iowa.
