Bovine TB again on radar after slaughter B.C. the cow is testing positively
Animals were processed at the Alberta facility last month, but they did not go into food
The Canadian livestock industry is again awaiting the results after another case of bovine tuberculosis has been confirmed.
This time, the cow was slaughtered at a federal facility on October 26 in Alberta, but returned to a farm in south B.C. interior. Canadian Food Inspection Agency or B.C. government, which conduct a joint investigation.
The laboratory test confirmed the disease in a mature cow on November 9, while CFIA did not notice that no part of the animal had entered the food chain.
"This finding did not affect Canada's status without TBT," the statement said on the CFIA website.
There are no exact numbers of the flocks and animals that may have been exposed.
To date, only one cow with bovine tuberculosis has been confirmed, although the testing of the herd in which the animal has expired continues.
However, on their website, the agency says six girls in both B.C. and Alberta have been placed under limited movement controls for testing purposes.
It appears that this case is not tied to six positive cases from a ranch near Lethbridge in 2016, resulting in the destruction of more than 12,000 cattle with producers compensated with $ 16.7 million.
