Forty Minnesota strains of Brucella have been classified as follows: 25 strains of Br. suis, 13 strains of Br. abortus and 2 strains with conflicting reactions but one appeared to be Br. suis and one Br. melitensis. The agglutinin absorption method is of little or no value in the differentiation of Brucella strains in Minnesota. The original oxygen tension requirement together with the dye plate growth characteristics gave a fairly reliable means of differentiating the Brucella strains. The Brucella strains isolated in Minnesota from human cases of undulant fever indicated Br. suis to be the etiological agent about twice as often as Br. abortus.
