Cow tests negative for bovine TB in ND

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP)--State Veterinarian Susan Keller says the last of 28 suspect cows in initial testing of a southwestern North Dakota beef cattle herd has tested negative for bovine tuberculosis.

Further tests still need to be done on a 29th suspect cow found in a second round of tests. Testing of neighboring herds also is ongoing. No bovine TB has been found in any of the tests so far.

The cattle are being tested after a cow with a TB lesion was found at a meat processing plant in Long Prairie, Minn., late last year. The cow was traced back to the herd in southwestern North Dakota, which has since been quarantined.

If bovine TB is found, state wildlife officials plan to kill hundreds of deer and elk to prevent them from spreading the disease to other livestock.
