Indiana's quarantined cattle herds expose to bovine tuberculosis
 

 

The Indiana State Board of Animal Health has quarantined several cattle herds which were recently shipped from South Dakota might have been exposed to bovine tuberculosis. 

 

The agency says it was notified by the South Dakota state veterinarian this week that seven head of beef cattle recently shipped to Indiana may have been exposed to the chronic bacterial disease. The agency says it has identified all of the herds to which the South Dakota cattle were shipped. None of the imported cattle had tested positive for the disease by Wednesday (Nov 23), and the agency says it's working to complete testing as soon as possible.

 

Until test results are available, the cattle are considered exposed to TB.

 

Indiana's most recent case of bovine TB was identified in south eastern Indiana's Dearborn County nearly a year ago.
