ABSTRACT
The objective of the present study was to determine the seroprevalence of Leptospira spp in two sheep farms in Puno, Peru. Blood samples (n=100) were collected from March to May 2006 at the ILLPA Experminental Research Farm of INIA and the Asiruni farm. The samples were processed using the microscopic agglutination serological test. The total prevalence was 57%, without differences between farms.
