TB Found in Oliver County Heifer

Posted: Updated:

Veterinarians investigate a case of tuberculosis (TB) in a heifer from an Oliver County.

State Veterinarian Dr. Susan Keller says the owner agreed to have the cow tested after an employee tested positive for TB.

"The heifer had never produced milk, and in any case, routine pasteurization would prevent any contamination of the milk supply," says Keller.

Tuberculosis is a disease that can be transmitted between animals and humans.

State officials are conducting an investigation to determine the source and prevent spreading the disease.
