Cattle movement causes trich-y problems

Moving cattle around the country has started to cause health problems, like trichomoniasis, that weren’t as much of a problem in the past, according to Iowa State University Extension veterinarian Grant Dewell.

“Historically, female cattle would stay on their ranch or origin until they were culled for slaughter. Now, it’s not uncommon for cows to change ownership two, three or even more times during their life,” he said. “Many of these cows are not only changing ranch of origin, but they are changing ZIP codes and states.”
