VietNamNet Bridge – In several days, the number of dead cattle in northern Vietnam has rocketed. By January 12, nearly 4400 buffaloes and cows were dead, up by nearly 2000 heads over January 11.
According to the Animal Husbandry Department under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Son La province suffered the highest loss, with 1300 heads, followed by Lao Cai with over 800 heads.
The department chief Hoang Kim Giao took a field trip to some northern mountain districts on January 13. Giao said that though northern provinces have timely implemented measures to protect cattle from the chill, the number of dead cattle still keeps rising. He said if the cold weather continues, the damage will be huge.
A cold spell has hit northern Vietnam since early January 2011 and it is forecast to last until January 21. Its damage is only behind the historical chill in 2008, which last for 38 days, killing up to 52,000 cattle heads, 150,000 hectares of rice, totaling VND400 billion (over $20 million) of losses.
TOWN OF STOCKTON, Wis. (AP) — An investigation is under way after 200 dead cows were found in a field in the Town of Stockton.
The Portage County sheriff’s office says 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.
WSAW reports samples from the dead cows have been sent to Madison for testing.
Authorities say there is no threat to humans or other animals.
Have they ruled out electrocution? I know a farmer who lost 50 cattle when lightning struck a field, the cows didn't look burned or damage but it must have stopped their hearts. Freak occurence, very weird but he witnessed it himself.
