“Vibriosis has been diagnosed in a number of beef and dairy herds in Tasmania recently and the impact of this disease can be severe. In one case, about a quarter of pregnancy tested in-calf cows in a large herd did not calve and three other herds that received cattle from that herd also experienced pregnancy loss. There is also a very serious financial impact associated with this disease.”
If you would like further information on vibriosis infection in cattle please refer to the Tasmanian Livestock Health Monitoring Reports or consult your veterinarian.
