Bovine TB

Black Angus

In late September, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency discovered a cow with bovine tuberculosis linked to Brad Osadczuk's ranch in Jenner, Alta., and launched an investigation which confirmed five other cases tied to his herd.

Since then, about 40 herds across Alberta and Saskatchewan were placed under quarantine and about 10,000 cattle will be destroyed to help control the spread of the disease.

Recent updates from the CFIA revealed about $16.7 million will be made available in financial assistance.
