A cross sectional study was conducted from November, 2014 to April, 2015 on 14508 slaughtered cattle at Yola Abattoir Adamawa State on Postmortem examination. The objectives of the study were to determine the prevalence of Contagious Bovine Pleuro Pneumonia (CBPP), Bovine Fasciolosis and Bovine Tuberculosis (BTB) in slaughtered cattle according to sex and breeds. A regular visit was made to the Yola Abattoir at 6:00 AM seven times a week and this was done for six months. A total of 14508 slaughtered cattle were examined at postmortem and 3418 (23.56%) cases were recorded; CBPP 898 (6.19%), Fasciolosis 1100 (7.58%) and TB 1420 (9.79%). There was statistical significance (P<0.05) in the distribution of the diseases among the slaughtered cattle. However, according to sex out of the 3418 cases, 908 (6.26%) were male while 2510 (17.30%) were female. There was high significance difference in sex distribution of the diseases and in terms of breeds, Adamawa Gudali 1006 (6.93%), Sokoto Gudali 900 (5.51%), Red Bororo 800 (6.20%) and White Fulani 712 (4.91%). There was statistical variation (P<0.05) among the breeds. This study would serve as a valuable tool in monitoring pathological condition in the study area.
