Of 955 beef cattle slaughtered at an abattoir in Quebec from May to August 1985, 122 (13%) had lesions of focal interstitial nephritis. Nephritic kidneys were collected for leptospiral culture, and matching blood samples were examined serologically. Leptospires were isolated from the kidneys of 35 (29%) cattle. Antibodies to Leptospira interrogans serovar hardjo were found in 29 (24%) cattle and to pomona in 13 (10%).
