US detects pseudorabies infection in Colorado ranch
           
 

A ranch located in Mesa County in US state Colorado has been quarantined following the detection of pseudorabies in the ranch's animals.

 

Pseudorabies is a contagious disease that poses risks to livestock, particularly pigs. The quarantine orders require veterinary inspection of all animals currently held at the ranch, and investigation of the infection is continuing.

 

About 14 hogs were tested positive for the disease, and all seized animals are being held by the state at a secure location.

 

The quarantine order states that no animals, dead or alive, may be removed from or enter the ranch until further notice.
