“…2020) and swine (Fernandes et al . 2020), sexual transmission should not be neglected. Additionally, transmission also can occur through reproduction biotechnologies, like embryo transfer and artificial insemination (Bielanski and Surujballi 1998; Givens 2018), if antibiotics are not used in the process.…”

“…The serogroup Australis, the most frequent serogroup observed in the state of Paraíba, was found in 87.5% of the investigated municipalities.

On geospatial analysis, the municipality of Monteiro stands out for its high animal-level prevalence and its border with the state of Pernambuco, which may be a risk due to interstate transit of animals.…”
