DNR to discuss bovine TB management
The Indiana DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife and the Indiana State Board of Animal Health will hold a public meeting to update landowners, cattle farmers, hunters, and any other interested parties on local bovine tuberculosis management on Jan. 15.
The public meeting at the Laurel Public Library in Franklin County will start at 6 p.m.
Bovine tuberculosis is a chronic bacterial disease that affects primarily cattle, but can be transmitted to any mammal. The disease can result in significant negative economic impact.
DNR staff will present future plans for continued bTB eradication efforts. BOAH staff will provide an update on the current status of bTB management in cattle in the area.
