Two Wisconsin cattle contracted epizootic hemorrhagic disease, a disease seen in deer but never before found in Wisconsin cattle, according to the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. The World Dairy Expo is underway in Madison, but animal health officials say cattle there likely aren't at risk. "The symptoms of EHD are similar to those of foot and mouth disease. So, farmers who notice signs of illness in cattle are encouraged to immediately contact their veterinarian to rule out a possible foreign animal disease," said state veterinarian Paul McGraw.
