    Abstract

    Serological surveillance for antibodies against bovine herpes virus type I (BHV-1) which causes infectious bovine rhinotracheitis and infectious pustular vulvovaginitis has been carried out since 1992 in Norway. Since 1993 (when a single infected herd was detected) all bulk-milk and pooled-serum samples have been negative for BHV-1 antibodies. This paper describes the use of Monte Carlo simulation models for the analysis and interpretation of the results of the surveillance and provides support for the contention that the Norwegian cattle population is not infected by BHV-1.
