In this study, prevalence of Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis (IBR) was investigated from cows with repeat breeder in Ergani district of Diyarbakir province. Blood samples were collected 3-10 of different ages ranging from 108 cows. The presences of IBR antibodies in the samples were examined using Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) kits. The results of the ELISA indicated that 52 (48.15%) of 108 animals were seropositive and other (51.85%) were seronegative. Although there are not difference between the groups in the distribution of results according to breed, according to age, IBR seropositivity from 7 years (86.67%) and older animals group were found to be higher (p<0.01). As a result, IBR seropositivity from cows with repeat breeder is high and, this ratio was more increased the older animals. Therefore, wing was concluded that the necessary measures taken against IBR for the cows in the region improve the efficiency of progeny.
