A seroprevalence study on 5439 cattle from April to June 2007 was conducted based on a circumstantial diagnosis of two cases of bovine brucellosis in the district of Codo del Pozuzo, en the region of Huanuco.

The beta distribution using a simulation model showed a prevalence of 0.02% with a minimum interval of confidence of 0 and maximum of 0.06%.
