The overall individual animal prevalence of 0.77 % and 0.2 % were recorded in five districts and Jimma town, respectively. Higher prevalences were observed in larger herd size (P< 0.001); older age group were affected more than younger animals (P< 0.05) in the extensive management system. Seropositivities of 8 % were observed in animals with previous history of abortion. In the study of the disease in human beings, classified in four high- risk occupational groups, using RBT and CFT, the highest prevalence (14.3%) was observed among animal health workers and followed by farmers (3.2 %) and there was no reactors found among butchers and abattoir workers. An overall prevalence (2.4 %) was found in the area. Since the prevalence is below 2 %, test and slaughter with compensation payment to farmers is recommendable, while in case of human brucellosis, since its presence is confirmed and the risk factors are identified, the medical personnel should give attention as to differential diagnosis of the disease which have been overlooked so far.
