For yours and your neighbors' sakes I hope not. Brucellosis is a contagious bacterial disease that causes abortions. I believe there is no effective treatment and cattle that have it are separated for slaughter. Many states in the US have been certified free of this disease. Prevention is by vaccination on heifers 4 to 12 months of age. I believe there may be laws that mandate reports of this disease to state and/or federal officials. For this disease and other herd health issues you may wish to check out this website: http://angus.interspeed.net/alot/hh.html<br>Hope this helps. Best wishes for a healthy herd.<br>Jennifer @ Double A Angus Ranch

In any case, you may wish to consult your vet.

Michelle-<br>I was not aware that there were different brucellosis vaccines. Last spring our vet vaccinated some of our heifers that were in the 10 to 12 month range...Next time we see him, I'll ask him about the different vaccines and if those older heifers may test positive should we ever sell them.<br>Jennifer
