Bovine Adenovirus, also known as BAdV, is a member of the Adenoviridae family that causes disease in cattle. There are 10 serotypes recognized and the virus had a worldwide distribution—being particularly common in Africa and Central America.
Infection usually results in disease of the gastrointestinal or respiratory tract. Infection may also cause ocular or generalized signs and may contribute to enzootic pneumonia, depending on the serotype of the virus. However, infection may not always result in disease as the virus can be isolated in healthy cattle.
