Wyoming: Cattle initially test positive for brucellosis

Dr. Jim Logan, Wyoming state veterinarian, said Wednesday, Oct. 27, three cows from a northwest Wyoming herd have initially tested positive for brucellosis. Tissue and blood samples were taken from the cows and sent to the state lab for further testing, which could take up to two weeks to complete.

Scientists believe the area around Yellowstone National Park in northwest Wyoming contains the last remaining traces of the disease, which can be transmitted from wildlife to cattle. The presence of brucellosis in the herd, if confirmed in the herd, could endanger the state’s current federal brucellosis-free rating, and result in additional testing and movement restrictions.
