|A bovine herpesvirus was isolated in testis cells and identified as bovine herpesvirus type 5 (BoHV-5) by polymerase chain reaction and by direct amplicon sequencing.
The amplicon sequence shared 100% similarity with the published sequence of BoHV-5.
This is the first report in Australia of BoHV-5 in semen. The implications of this finding are discussed.
