Bovine tuberculosis 2011

In 2011, samples from one cattle for Mycobacterium sp. examination was submitted from post-mortem of fallen stock.

The low number of submitted samples indicates a low prevalence of suspicious pathological lesions.Continuous surveillance by veterinary meat inspection, early and effective eradication campaigns,combined with restricted import of live cattle, have contributed significantly to this situation.
