Description Extended Information
 
Tritrichomonas foetus in cattle is a Sexually Transmitted Infection and is associated with aborted calves, low birth weight, or delayed calving, which can result in decreased herd yields of 8-29%. Bull infection rates are 6-8%, but have been found to be as high as 44% in some rangeland areas of the western US. Bovine trichomonosis is caused by the flagellate protozoan, Tritrichomonas foetus.

Transmission of the infection is by coitus. Bulls are the long term carriers of the disease whereas cows clear the infection spontaneously; therefore bulls are the primary source of testing for the organism. Organisms are present in small numbers around the preputial cavity of bulls, with some concentration in the fornix and around glans penis.

InPouchTM TF, the Gold Standard in the United States, is the best system for the detection of T. foetus. Recommended by name in several states which require screening, it provides long shelf life and high specificity, all within the convenient InPouchTM system.

*InPouchTM is now used for the detection of non-specific trich in bovines, Trichomonas gallinae in avian, and T. suis in swine.
