Bovine Tuberculosis

About Bovine Tuberculosis

Michigan Cattlemen work hard to raise healthy cattle, which is the first step in producing safe, wholesome and nutritious beef for American families.  Since 1994, the state of Michigan has recognized a problem with bovine TB in wild white-tailed deer from a fourteen county area in northeastern Lower Michigan.  The presence of Bovine TB puts Michigan’s cattle industry at risk.
