The Minnesota Board of Animal Health said that bovine TB was detected in another herd of cattle in Roseau County. The newly detected beef herd was tested because it was close to another that had tested positive in 2005. Animals in the latest infected herd were also tested in 2005 and 2006 and no TB was found. Two of the animals tested positive for bovine TB last year. State Veterinarian Bill Hartman said if one more diseased Minnesota herd was found, the stat's TB status could be downgraded, changing and possibly restricting Minnesota cattle's import and export status. Humans are normally not affected by bovine TB through either meet or milk supply and adequate cooking destroys the bacteria.
