Enzootic bovine leucosis (EBL) is a retroviral infection which is common all over the world. EBL causes huge economic losses due to milk loss, yield loss and death. In this study, it was aimed to investigate the presence of EBL by ELISA method from blood samples taken from cattle which were determined to be healthy because of clinical examination in Ardahan province and its counties in March-April 2021. For this, 500 cattle of different breeds and sexes between 1-10 years of age in different enterprises were sampled and the antibody response against EBL in the blood serum samples obtained was investigated with a commercial ELISA test kit. All 500 blood serum samples tested by ELISA were negative for EBL. As a result, EBL seropositivity was determined as 0% in Ardahan region as the studied area and time period.
