POWELL, Wyo. β€” Only one more cow has initially tested positive for brucellosis as the state continues testing more than a thousand cows in northern Wyoming area.

The new cow with the disease was from the same herd where the first three cows tested positive for exposure to the disease in preparation for sale at a livestock market.

State Veterinarian Jim Logan tells the Powell Tribune that he’s encouraged that extensive testing has yielded only one more positive result.

Fourteen Meeteetse area herds are quarantined under a state order until testing is complete. Logan expects some results to become available next week.

The source of the brucellosis is not yet known.
