The Nebraska Department of Agriculture is investigating an outbreak of bovine tuberculosis in the northeast part of the state discovered on Tuesday. Ag Department’s Public Information Officer Christen Kamm says only one animal has been infected so far.
Kamm says they’ve done some testing and are still trying to determine if the disease has spread or not.
She says they’re advising producers to be vigilant.
Kamm says if producers think their animals may have contacted the disease or have any concerns to work with their local vet or contact the State Ag Department’s Animal Health Division.
