KSVDL Seeking Kansas Cattle Producers to Help with Bovine Anaplasmosis Study

The KSVDL is looking for Kansas cattle producers to participate in a study to determine the prevalence of bovine anaplasmosis in cow herds within the state and to investigate management risk factors associated with blood test results.

Understanding anaplasmosis prevalence and the management factors that contribute to its presence in cow-calf herds will be important for formulating both prevention and disease management plans in the near future. This information will not only be useful for Kansas herds, but herds throughout the United States.

The targeted sampling period will start Oct. 1, 2016 with a targeted endpoint of Jan. 31, 2017.

Students at the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine will be contacting veterinarians to participate in this study. If you are selected to participate, please say YES as your participation is very important for the success of this project.

More information is available by contacting Gregg Hanzlicek at 785-532-4853 or email gahanz@vet.k-state.edu .
