Abstract: The study was conducted on 72 uterine cytology samples collected from repeat breeding cows with subclinical endometritis for bacteriological examinations to find out the prevalence of aerobic bacterial flora in subclinical endometritis. Presence of aerobic bacteria was detected in 61 samples (84.72 %) of repeat breeding cows with subclinical endometritis. Of the 72 cows, 61 samples (84.72 %) yielded bacterial isolates, among which Staphylococcus aureus isolates were recorded the highest percentage of total isolates (38.88 %) followed by E. coli spp. (36.11 %), Streptococcus spp. (33.33 %), Enterobacter spp. (22.22 %), Proteus spp. (18.05 %) and Pseudomonas spp. (16.67 %). It is concluded from the study that large proportion of cows will have subclinical endometritis due to aerobic bacteria which results in repeat breeding syndrome.
