Abstract: 

In order to evaluate the prevalence of Cryptosporidium parvum in less than I-year-old calves in Shahrekord dairy farms, 400 samples were randomly collected from 30 dairy farms in Shahrekord area in summer 2005. Fecal samples were directly taken from calves' rectums and smears were prepared and stained by modified acid-fast method. The smears were examined by using light microscope. Seventy two (18%) out of 400 smears were infected with Cryptosporidium oocysts. In morph metric evaluation of the oocytes, the calves were infected with Cryptosporidium parvum.
In statistical analysis there was no significant relationship between sex and the rate of infection (P>0.05). The relationship between age and rate of infection, however, was significant (P<0.05). Moreover, the maximum prevalence was detected in calves with less than I-month age (32.98%). The relationship between the rate of infection and clinical incidence of diarrhea was significant such as the incidence of diarrhea in infected calves which was two-fold when compared with no infected calves (Odd's Ratio=2/3).
