Researchers Find That Cattle Tuberculosis Remains in Fields For Up to 4 Months
Researchers from the University of Warwick's Department of Biological Sciences have found evidence that bovine tuberculosis remains in fields for up to 4 months. This means that long after an outbreak of bovine TB on a farm healthy cattle may still be exposed to the disease from pasture that had been used by infected cows any time in the previous 4 months. University of Warwick researchers... View News Article (2002-04-19)
