Seroprevalence of paratuberculosis in cattle herds in Slovenia was estimated. Animals older than two years in 20 % of herds of Slovenia were tested in 2008. A total of 38,374 sera from 6,780 cattle herds were examined in ELISA test. A total of 228 (0.59 %) animals from 188 (2.77 %) herds were positive. Currently, the seroprevalence of paratuberculosis in cattle herds in Slovenia is almost the same as it was in 1997 (2.77 % vs. 2.84 %). Compared to the majority of European countries, the herd prevalence is rather low. This could be partly attributed to a small number of animals per herd.
