Abstract: Seven hundred and fifty faecal samples from piglets ranging from 1 to 60 days old were studied for the presence of group A rotavirus by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) and by enzyme immunoassay (EIA). From 451 diarrhoeic pigs, 117 (25.94%) were positive for rotavirus and only 45 (15.05%) of 299 pigs without diarrhoea excreted the virus (P < 0.005). When these animals were separated into four age groups with regard to the presence or absence of diarrhoea, it was observed that the excretion of rotavirus was associated with diarrhoea in piglets, both before and after weaning.
