Abstract For the development of surveillance programs in the aftermath of the epidemic it is important to know what is to be expected on the distribution of infection within livestock herds. Livestock herds are epidemiological units within geographical compartments in a country from which (sentinel) animals are sampled to determine the infection status. Sample size calculations to detect to disease or estimate prevalence of disease are dependent on the a priori prevalence of disease to be expected after introduction into a animal herd. The objective of this investigation was to describe the distribution of laboratory confirmed infection (serology and PCR) in infected cattle and sheep herds in the affected countries France, Belgium and the Netherlands
