200 Dead cows, I wonder if it has anything to do with the mass bird and fish deaths, I also heard some chatter here locally that the virus which was referenced could not have killed that many cows that fast it will be interesting to see what develops. I always wondered if all these animal deaths were due to a virus test run.

Search function is a very handy tool to use! This is the third thread on this subject today.

Wow, now cows?

If it's a virus hopefully it's not mutating and jumping species. Remember to take whatever the media has to say about this with a grain of salt. You never know who to believe anymore.

Thanks for the post!
Take care.

Wondering if there was any indication of how long the cows had been dead. If no one had seen them for days, they could have had a virus and died a few at a time - otherwise if they all died at once I would connect it to what ever is going on with the birds and fish.

Sick Cows do not all die on the same night.. Anybody with 200 cows knows how to take care of them it not a easy task. I just hope its not a insurance scam. But I doubt that it is. Every rancher i know will do anything to help is stock. This is weird real weird.

I am just curious as i do not have pets any more but does anyone see anything strange with their pets at home.
I also wonder if it makes any sense trying to find out if the domestic pets have acted strange around the areas of these mass deaths prior to the kill offs?
just a thought

Naah, just realized that Vitchilo posted his in the "fragile earth" forum and you posted yours in the "breaking news" forum, so it's legit. Both can remain running according to the T&C.....


On topic, after looking at that field on Google maps, I am pretty sure those cows could not have been laying there for long but that raises the question of how on earth 200 cows can drop dead simultaneously. And judging by the size of those fields, you can't explain it away by saying that it was probably a very large herd and only a small percentage died....

Peace

Infectious bovine rhinotracheitis is the word on the street... let's hope that it can be contained if it is, or the good people of Wisconsin are in a world of bother.

Thats right.
They get a check almost every day, by those milk machines.
The machine knows, when to put more minerals in, or even less food.
It checks the milk quality and all.

I assume every farmer has such an advanced milking machine by now, cause they are on the market for more then a decade.

Wow...interesting. My apologies in advance if this has already been done (I haven't checked all the responses to these mass die off threads) but has any one gone back researched to see how "frequent" these deaths are? It seems that after the report which introduced the notion that these things are common these reports stopped.

I can tell you right now if my neighbor lost 200 cows the whole town would be at his ranch finding out what the Hell is going on. Man that's 200 hundred grand, + momma cows and bred back heifers. If a bear Kills a calf we know about it. Ranchers know every inch of there land, and they take this so seriously most people would have no understanding of what pride it takes to pasture and take care of 200 cows this is huge, I know cows there is not one sickness I know about that would do this in this time frame..

Sorry about that...



According to the Portage County Sheriff's Department, the owner of the cattle has been working with a local vet and it's believed the animals died from the IBR/BVD virus. The virus can cause respitory and reproductive problems.

Source: WSAW.com

Since they were so quick so come up with IBR, I'm assuming they either saw physical characteristics on the carcasses or the farmer had recently run out of Bovi-Shield. Not that I'm saying this is definitely the cause, mind you; this is not exactly my area of expertise.

Thank you for the link! I still have questions such as how long had the cows been dead? Does a whole herd die at once or very close together with bovine disease? Anyone?
