Bovine tuberculosis (TB) is almost nonexistent in the United States today due to an aggressive eradication effort begun earlier this century. Today we recognize the public health concerns associated with drinking milk from tubercular cows. However, those concerns were not so apparent at the early point of eradication efforts and our profession had an uphill battle carrying out the testing of cattle within the United States.
