USDA approves Minnesota's request for TB-free status

Email

WILLMAR -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved Minnesota's application for statewide bovine tuberculosis-free status, effective Oct. 4. The approval comes six years after the discovery of an infected beef herd in July 2005.

In recent years, status downgrades have been the cause of increased testing and movement requirements for Minnesota cattle, both in-state and out. With USDA's approval, the status upgrade will bring relief to most Minnesota cattle producers.
