An investigation is under way after 200 dead cows were found in a field in the Town of Stockton.
Investigators with the Portage County Sheriff’s Office said the owner of the cattle has been working with a local veterinarian and it’s believed the animals died from the IBR/BVD virus. The virus can cause respiratory and reproductive problems.
Samples from the dead cows have been sent to Madison for testing.
Authorities said there is no threat to humans or other animals.
Wonder if Mark Wadsworth picked up on this. [JH]
