UK: Imported cattle tested negative for brucellosis
Five animals imported from France in February gave initial reactions for brucellosis during routine post-import checks. Further tests have shown negative results, confirming that the cattle did not have brucellosis. One of the animals, in a consignment of 44 imported from France on 4 February, gave a positive result when subjected to routine blood-testing at the premises of arrival in Cumbria. This animal was slaughtered and tests on samples from the animal were carried out using bacteriological culture techniques. These tests proved negative for brucellosis.
