Board orders testing of imported bulls
Farm and Ranch Guide
The North Dakota State Board of Animal Health has ordered testing requirements for most bulls imported into the state to prevent the spread of trichomoniasis.
A venereal disease of cattle, trichomoniasis causes fetal abortions, uterine infections and increased numbers of open cows. It is a reportable disease in North Dakota.
The requirements were implemented July 23, according to the state veterinarian, Dr. Susan Keller, as a result of trichomoniasis infections reported in surrounding states.
