A second herd in Michigan has two cattle that have tested positive for tuberculosis.
Cattle from this herd in Kalamazoo County had spent time on a farm in Ottawa County where tuberrculosis was found last week.
The original carriers of the illness came from Franklin County, Indiana, where two beef herds and a whitetail deer tested positive in 2016.
Michigan’s acting assistant state veterinarian Jarold Goodrich says officials will try to identify any other farms that may be affected.
A three-mile surveillance area has been established around the Kalamazoo County farm. Cattle in the area must be tested within six months.
