Brucellosis is one of the zoonotic diseases that cause devastating losses to the livestock industry, the main source of the disease is ingesting contaminated food and unpasteurized dairy products or occupational exposure, and it’s highly prevalent in the northern part of the kingdom among small ruminants’ herds due to low vaccination coverage and poor surveillance system. Vaccinating livestock and food safety are the best methods of controlling the disease in Jordan.
