Alpena County dairy herd

tests positive for bovine TB

June 28, 2012 | 0 comments

Officials say a medium-sized dairy herd in Michigan's northeastern Lower Peninsula has tested positive for bovine tuberculosis.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development announced the results Friday (June 22) for the Alpena County cattle following testing by the agency and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The state says a meeting is planned for July 12 at Alpena Community College to discuss the findings.

The Alpena County farm is quarantined.

Federal officials have designated most of the Lower Peninsula as free of bovine TB. A high-risk zone remains in Alcona, Alpena, Montmorency and Oscoda counties.

Bovine TB is a contagious bacterial disease of cattle and other animals. Authorities found it among Michigan deer in 1994. Since testing began, 54 Michigan cattle herds have been affected by bovine TB.
