Across sectional study was conducted with objective to determine sero-prevalence bovine brucellosis occurrence from Dec 2009 to Feb 2010 at Chencha district of Gamo Gofa zone. Total of 384 serum samples were collected from cattle and tested for the presence of brucell antibodies using Rose Bengal Plate Test (RBPT). Overall seroprevalence of 4 (1.04%) was recorded in the area. Among the risk factors Abortion and RFM (Retain Fetal membrane) were found significantly associated with sero-positivity (p<0.05). In conclusion the present work generally showed low sero prevalence of bovine brucellosis in the study area and brucellosis was clinically associated with abortion and retained fetal membrane.
