The data provides an overview of the prevalence and risk factors of bovine tuberculosis in cattle in specific districts of Fafan pastoral settings in Eastern Ethiopia. It aims to determine the prevalence rate, identify contributing risk factors, and offer guidance for disease control and prevention. The dataset includes information on the number of cattle tested, positive cases, and the raw data which prevalence rate was calculated. It also covers demographic and management characteristics of sampled herds, such as herd size, age and gender distribution of cattle, and their seasonal migration. Furthermore, the data explores risk factors associated with bovine tuberculosis transmission, including herd size, reproductive status and physiological status . By investigating the relationships between these risk factors and the prevalence of bovine tuberculosis, the data helps identify potential interventions and mitigation strategies. In conclusion, this data provides valuable insights into the prevalence and associated risk factors of bovine tuberculosis in cattle within selected districts of Fafan pastoral settings, Eastern Ethiopia. It serves as a foundation for developing targeted measures to control and prevent bovine tuberculosis transmission in the region.
