Nebraska Ranchers Must Report Cattle Diseases to State

February 3, 2014

State officials are reminding Nebraska ranchers and feedlot operators about new rules requiring them to report certain cattle illnesses shortly after they're found.

The Nebraska Agriculture Department is working to limit the spread of trichomoniasis in the state. That disease can cause infertility and miscarriages in cattle.

Cattle producers must report a trichomoniasis diagnosis to the state within five days. Ranchers also must notify their neighbors within 14 days of the diagnosis.

State Veterinarian Dennis Hughes says trichomoniasis can be devastating to a herd, and sharing the information can help neighbors protect their animals.
