Disease detected in Wyoming cattle
A cow with epizootic hemorrhagic disease was recently detected in an eastern Wyoming cattle herd.
The cow was off-feed and drooling, and following a physical examination by local veterinarians, vesicular lesions involving the mouth were detected.
Samples for laboratory diagnosis were collected immediately by USDA APHIS veterinarians and forwarded to USDA's National Veterinary Services Laboratory at Plum Island, N.Y., to make certain the lesions were not caused by other, similar looking diseases foreign to U.S. livestock.
The affected cow is now recovering.
