An important factor for the introduction and spread of infectious disease in cattle is the animal movement between farm premises. Thus, the knowledge of characteristics of animal movement can help in the control and prevention of infectious diseases such as bovine brucellosis. So, for this study, we will use the following data: data of network of cattle movement obtained from the animal traffic form of the State of Mato Grosso related to the intensity of trade between premises and the importance of the farm holdings position in the network; and the data of the survey for brucellosis obtained from the National Program for the Control and Eradication of Brucellosis and Tubercullosis. Statistical analyses of the characteristics of the network of animal movement from holdings positive and negative for brucellosis will be compared to assess the relationship between animal movement and bovine brucellosis.
