The present study was carried out for the isolation, identification and molecular characterization of Brucella species. A total of 50 samples were collected from cattle and buffalo suffering from abortions and other reproductive disorders in and around Ludhiana, Punjab. Out of the 50 samples of fetal stomach contents (25), uterine discharges (10), vaginal mucus (8) and placenta (7) processed for isolation of Brucella of which a total of four isolate were obtained and identified biochemically. All the 4 isolates were typed as biotype 1. DNA was extracted from the solates and subjected to PCR using B4/B5 primer pair. All the isolates were positive by PCR and an amplicon size of 223bp was obtained.
