Isolation of a virus from spontaneously degenerated tissue culture of bovine kidney origin is reported. The isolate represents a herpesvirus on the basis of its physicochemical, morphological and biological properties. Serologically it is related to the Movar 33/63 strain of bovine herpesvirus. In experimental infection no pathogenicity was observed. The fact of isolation presents further information that apparently normal calves can carry herpesviruses.
