Extension meeting will discuss trichomoniasis regulations


Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted disease that has been increasingly diagnosed in Kansas. Bulls are the primary carriers of this disease but the effects are seen in the female, often causing pregnancy rates to fall as much as 50 percent. Cows can clear themselves of the infection, but bulls will be carriers for life once they are infected. New regulations are now being put into place to help stop the spread of this disease.

On Feb. 21, a program will be held at the Fairgrounds 4-H building in Belleville by K-State Research and Extension and KSDA's Division of Animal Health to discuss trichomoniasis, the new regulations, and animal traceability. BBQ brisket lunch from the Cuba Cash Store will be served from 11:30 a.m. to noon, with the program immediately following. To sign up for this free program, call any River Valley District office by Feb. 19. These new regulations on trich and animal traceability will be put into place next month, so be sure you know what you need to do for your operation to be in compliance.
