	  abstract     = {The occurrence of adult Taenia saginata in major
abattoirs in Port Harcourt metropolis was investigated. Out of 514
cattle investigated, an overall prevalence of 35(6.8%) was recorded.
Infected male and female cattle represented 1.2% (6/514) and 5.6%
(29/514) of the overall prevalence respectively. There was a
statistical significant difference (P< 0.05) in prevalence of adult
Taenaia saginata between male and female cattle examined in the
study area. Old cattle have a significant (P< 0.05) infestation rate
than young ones. Adult Taenia saginata exists in cattle and still
remains a public health concern in the study area. Deliberate effort is
needed from stake-holders and the Government to design and
implement programs that will lead to the prevention and possible
eradication of the parasite.
