CATTLE DISEASE
(2008-02-04)
(wgvu) - CATTLE PRODUCERS IN THE WESTERN UPPER
PENINSULA ARE TAKING PART IN A PROGRAM AIMED AT STUDYING A DISEASE
THAT CAUSES DIARRHEA, LISTLESSNESS AND LOSS OF APPETITE IN COWS.
BOVINE VIRAL DIARRHEA VIRUS DOESN'T SPREAD FROM COWS TO HUMANS.
UNDER THE STUDY, SKIN SAMPLES WILL BE TAKEN FROM COWS AND SENT
TO RESEARCHERS FOR TESTING.
MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY RESEARCHERS SAY MOST COWS THAT GET THE
VIRUS DEVELOP IMMUNITY, BUT SOME YOUNG CALVES HAVE A SHORTENED LIFE
SPAN.
IF ENOUGH FARMS JOIN THE PROJECT, IT COULD BE EXTENDED TO THE
REST OF THE U.P.
