The present study was carried out to analyse morbidity and mortality rate in bovines in the Haryana state. The data of total 936 cattle were collected from 240 cattle owners by stratified two-stage random sampling design and analysed statistically by SPSS V. 20. Overall morbidity and mortality rates in bovines due to HS were 2.78 percent and 2.56 percent, respectively whereas case fatality rate was 92.30 percent. It was found that indigenous animals, crossbred animals and buffaloes have the morbidity rates higher in milch animals than the other age categories like calves; heifer etc. Study also portrays that mortality rate was highest for crossbred cattle followed by indigenous cattle and buffaloes. Morbidity and mortality studies provide an important tool for determining the health status and guidelines for managemental practices, which will ultimately help in increasing the milk production and improve the economic status of livestock owners.
