Bovine tuberculosis has been found in a dairy in Curry County, N.M..

The Eastern New Mexico dairy was quarantined after animals were confirmed to have TB. According to the El Paso Times, state officials say the herd likely will be destroyed and the producer compensated for the loss.

Curry and neighboring Roosevelt counties already had restricted movement of cattle due to TB found in herds there three years ago.

And that would affect livestock producers throughout the state as all cattle would have to be tested for the disease before sale.
