Abstract
Malignant catarrhal fever virus (MCFV) was isolated from nasal and ocular secretions of young-free-ranging wildebeest calves. The virus occurred in a stable cell-free state in these secretions. Attempts to demonstrate the virus in a cell-free state in the nasal and ocular secretions of MCFV infected cattle were unfruitful. It was, therefore, postulated that MCFV was transmitted from wildebeest to cattle via the cell-free virus shed in the secretions of young wildebeest calves.
