Effective this past Wednesday, April 9, Minnesota's bovine tuberculosis status has been officially downgraded from Modified Accredited Advanced (MAA) to Modified Accredited (MA).


The drop in status was required by the U.S. Department of Agriculture after the discovery of four additional infected herds in northern Minnesota within the last 12 months. The infected herds were all discovered in Beltrami and Roseau counties, according to Minnesota State Veterinarian Dr. Bill Hartmann.
