 Bovine Brucellosis


Brucellosis / Contagious abortion continues to be a problem in the Gauteng cattle herd. In a recent survey it was found that 13,6% of herds are infected.

Farmers should ensure that they:

Buy replacement stock from known negative herds;

Vaccinate heifers between 4-7 months with a registered vaccine;

Report abortions to their local State Vet Office


The public is urged to only drink milk that is pasteurised and from a known source.
