11 More Moses Lake Cows Positive For Bovine Tuberculosis

Posted: Updated:
MOSES LAKE, Wash. (AP) - Eleven more cows at a Moses Lake dairy have tested positive for bovine tuberculosis.

State Agriculture Department spokesman Hector Castro told KING (http://bit.ly/UJbqq3) the cows have been removed from the herd for more testing.

None of 1,350 cows in the herd can be moved while testing continues. Milk from the dairy is safe, because it is pasteurized.

The state started testing after the disease was found in a cow at a slaughterhouse. No meat from the cow entered the food chain.
