Since blackleg is not a reportable disease, any numbers are an estimate. Of a susceptible population exposed to a source of the bacterium, you're likely 20%+, with vaccinated cattle, hopefully close to 0%. Distribution is worldwide (I believe), not necessarily the same strains.

Here in southeast Kansas Type C perfringins (one of the 7 listed on the blackleg vaccine) causes up to 3 or 4% death loss in unprotected calf crops.
