A Yankton County cattle herd has been found positive for bovine tuberculosis (TB) after a 3-year-old cow from the herd was confirmed to be infected with the disease.

State Veterinarian Dr. Dustin Oedekoven said the herd has been quarantined for additional testing.

“At this time, there is only one confirmed case, but we are taking all of the necessary precautions,” Dr. Oedekoven said.

Herds that have had contact with the affected herd, or purchased animals from that herd, are being tested by state and federal animal health officials. The positive test presents no risk to food safety.

Dr. Oedekoven said South Dakota remains a TB Accredited Free state and has had that status since 1982. The finding of a single affected beef herd will not automatically impact the Accredited TB-free status of the entire state.
