The present study was conducted to detect the incidence of Buxtonella sulcata infection in Cattle at Hisar, Haryana. A total of 60 faecal samples from Shri Krishan Gaushala and Go Anusandhan Kendra, Kabrel, Hisar (n = 30) and Haryana Kurukshetra Gaushala, Hisar, (n = 30) were examined. The results revealed an overall infection of 45% in the examined animals. A significant difference (p<0.01) in the incidence of infection was observed between two Gaushalas. The prevalence of B. sulcata also showed a significant (P<0.01) difference between the diarrhoeic and normal faeces. The sedimentation method of examination of cyst showed a significant (P<0.01) higher number of positive animals as compared to floatation method using saturated magnesium sulphate solution. Addition of Lugol’s Iodine further enhanced the visibility of the protozoan cyst.
