Bovine Tuberculosis

Bovine tuberculosis (TB) is a contagious disease of both animals and humans caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis). Before eradication measures were adopted, bovine TB was one of the major diseases of man and domestic animals.

In Canada, bovine TB is a reportable disease under the Health of Animals Act, and all cases must be reported to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
