Cows and Bulls are mainly raised for milk and meat. Cattle Milk and meat play a vital role in the worldwide economies and contribute to food security and nutrition. For greater financial income accumulation, Cattle sourced Food products encompassing milk, butter, yogurt, ghee, cheese, Tenderized meat, meat sausage, etc. are sources of financial income for farmers and food producers. Unfortunately, Cattle Sarcocystosis disease can affect food security, and Cattle farmers’ economies by inducing reduced milk production, weight loss and decreased meat quality, abortion, and even death due to the effect these parasites have on Cattle (Hoeve-Bakker et al., 2019). Cattle Sarcocystosis disease is so far known to be specifically caused by six Sarcocystis spp infections in the Cattle. Each of the six (S.cruzi, S.hominis, S.heydorni, S.rommeli, S.hirsuta, & S.bovifelis) has its own different definitive host The two zoonoses (S. hominis & S. heydorni) share human as their common definitive host. Though the most prevalent among six bovine species, S. Cruzi, is not a zoonosis (Ayazian Mavi et al., 2020), it is a financial burden to the food producers and it may perpetuate malnutrition and Food insecurity. Therefore, Strengthened Control in Food Safety, Food biotechnology, and the Veterinary parasitological sector with the involvement of the public, civil society, and private sector are required to prevent the spread of sporocysts and protect water and Cattle Feed from Sarcocystis spp contamination.
