Two bulls in Iowa test positive for venereal disease

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

State officials have placed a facility on quarantine after two bulls from the facility tested positive for a venereal disease in cattle.

At this time, officials say there are no signs of the disease in the bulls, but bovine trichomoniasis, a reportable disease in Iowa, could spread to cows and cause infertility.

Agriculture officials said Friday the quarantine will remain in effect until further testing confirms the disease is no longer present in the herd.  Officials have not identified the facility.
