This study aimed to evaluate the risk factors for anaplasmosis in dairy cattle.
Fifty dairy cattle from the herd of Empresa de Pesquisa Agropecuaria do Estado do Rio de Janeiro were selected by proportional stratified sampling.
The risk factors evaluated were: physiological state, race pattern, number of lactations, milk production, infestation by Rhipicephalus microplus and animal density.
Antibody activity against A. marginale was determined using the indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
The percentual values of seroprevalence for A.
marginale were submitted to χ2 test, and the level of minimum significance, to keep a factor in the model of logistic regression, was fixated in 5%.
It was observed that pregnancy and lactation influenced significantly (p 0.05) in the seropositivity of the animals.
