Abstract Epidemiological studies of bovine fasciolosis was conducted between May and July for 13 weeks as a result of constant report of the incidence of fasciolosis in bovine (Bos indicus) in Yola. The aim was to determine the prevalence rates according to breed, age, sex and weight of cattle. Antemortem (done through the physical examination of animals 1-2 days before slaughter) and postmortem examinations were carried out using liver samples from 6,749 slaughtered cattle which gave an incidence of 346 cases with an overall prevalence rate of 5.13 % from Adamawa gudali, White Fulani, Red Bororo and Sokoto Gudali breeds. Monthly prevalence rates decreased from May – July (6.11%, 5.00 % and 4.18%). The highest prevalence rate (9.16%) was recorded in Red Bororo, followed by White Fulani (4.95), then 2.24 % and 1.79 % for Sokoto and Adamawa Gudali breeds respectively.
