Bovine tuberculosis not completely eradicated

In the early 1900s, bovine tuberculosis was common in cattle herds across the United States. Since then, it has been nearly eradicated, but seems to continue to cause problems at various times.

A recent outbreak of bovine TB in Nebraska has led to the quarantine of 27 herds in 14 north central and eastern Nebraska counties.

One herd in Rock County, Neb., has two sick animals. While the herd has been quarantined, it has not been destroyed. Christin Kamm, spokesperson for the Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA), said the herd won't be destroyed unless the owner can be compensated for the loss.

"We appreciate the ongoing cooperation NDA has received from producers with the quarantined herds, as well as the assistance of U.S. Department of Agriculture personnel," said Nebraska Director of Agriculture Greg Ibach. "Through a team effort, we have made huge strides toward addressing this disease situation."
