Microscopy and Polymerase Chain Reaction technique was used to evaluate 150 blood samples from cattle in three abattoirs in Kaduna State to detect the presence of Trypanosoma vivax. Out of the 150 blood samples collected and tested for the presence of T. vivax using Microscopy,13 samples from Tudun-wada, Kawo and Makera abattoirs were found to positive giving a total prevalence of 26.0%. Tudun-wada abattoir had the highest prevalence with 16.0% while 3.0% and 2.0% for Kawo and Makera abattoirs respectively. Tudun- wada abattoir at 0.016 was seen to be significantly different at p
