    Bovine respiratory syncytial virus is an important respiratory pathogen in cattle. Recently, subgroups of BRSV have been identified, based on antigenic differences. However, little is known about subgroups of BRSV that circulate in the cattle population. Therefore, we determined the reactivity of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), directed against the G, F, or P protein of BRSV, with lung tissue from 47 calves, that suffered from severe respiratory disease. Fourteen animals (30%) proved to be infected with BRSV, because they all reacted with mAbs against the P or F protein, as detected by fluorescent antibody tests. Monoclonal antibodies against the G protein were abl
