Utah state vet warns of cattle disease outbreak

Utah is warning of a disease outbreak in cattle. The state veterinarian says that several bulls tested positive for trichomoniasis after grazing in a southern Idaho pasture last summer.

Ten herds grazed in that field and the state vet calls the discovery a concern.

Trich is a parasite that is spread through breeding. Bulls remain infected for life.

There is no treatment, and it can be economically devastating to a herd.
