The purpose of this study was to conduct diagnosis of bovine paratuberculosis in Kangwon area. Blood samples were collected from 2,261 dairy cows of 162 herds, and the ELISA and immunoblotting using recombinant 34KDa protein of M. paratuberculosis were conducted. The feces collected from dairy cows were cultured on HEY medium with mycobactin-J and PCR was conducted with washing solution of medium 4 weeks after culture. The ELISA had sensitivity of 83.3% and specificity of 96.7%. And the immunoblotting had sensitivity of 83.3% and specificity of 100%. Of the 2,261 dairy cows, 371 cows(16.4%) were positive in ELISA and 75 cows(3.3%) were positive in immunoblotting. And of the 162 herds, 109 herds(67.3%) had an apparent paratuberculosis prevalence by ELISA and 40 herds(24.7%) by immunoblotting. The geographic distribution of herds with paratuberculosis was not uniform. Of the 241 feces samples including 110 feces from ELISA positive cow, 9 feces were positive in culture and PCR. PCR was able to detect the growth of M. paratuberculosis as early as 4 weeks of culture.
