The incidence of bovine trypanosomosis was studied in Patna, Nalanda and Muzaffarpur districts of Bihar State. The incidence of this disease was found to be higher in cattle (58.86%) as compared to buffaloes (41.14%). Indigenous cattle (58.06%) were more susceptible than crossbred (41.94%). The incidence was higher in females than the males in both cattle and buffaloes. The numbers of cases were more in adult animals particularly 2–4 years age group. Highest incidence in cattle (52.69%) and buffaloes (52.31%) was observed during monsoon followed by winter (cattle-29.03% and buffaloes-33.85%) and least during summer season (cattle-18.28% and buffaloes-13.84%).
