The vector becomes infected when it feeds on an infected animal and then the virus replicates until it reaches the density necessary for transmission to another susceptible animal. Cattle can be a reservoir for verotoxic E.
The bacterium Mycoplasma agalactiae is a common pathogen of small ruminants and is of major importance in veterinary medicine. In ovines this disease is always due to M. agalactiae, but other Mycoplasma species, M. mycoides and M.
capricolum, can cause a similar disease in goats. BCV may also reproduce in the upper respiratory tract, causing reoccurring respiratory or gastrointestinal infection in an animal.
The crown of the unguis becomes red and painful. Affected animals can limp and ewes may abort.

Consequently, the Voluntary Johne’s Disease Herd Status Program for Cattle (VJDHSP) has been established. In April of 2002, USDA-APHIS-Veterinary Service incorporated parts of this program into its national program standards. Chronic inflammation of the intestine, mesenteric lymph node lesions, diarrhea, weight loss, and edema usually appear in animals of over 2 years of age with an advanced stage of the disease. PI3 is usually transmitted in nasal secretions, and its transmission is favored by animal transport (direct contact, poor ventilation, and a stagnant atmosphere).
hardjo-bovis is also associated with persistent reproductive tract infections that can cause infertility in cattle. FMD is a highly contagious viral disease that affects all cloven-hoofed animals, and is widespread throughout the world. FMD cannot be differentiated clinically from other vesicular diseases such as swine vesicular disease (SVD).
The bacterium can be spread from animals to humans through aerosols, or through the consumption of unpasteurized milk or dairy products from infected cows. The diseases are reported worldwide, with BSE found most frequently in Europe and CWD being most prevalent in North America.
The Schmallenberg virus belongs to the Bunyaviridae family, genus Orthobunyaviridae and is closely related to Akabane, Aino, and Shamonda viruses. This virus was first identified in November 2011 in Germany. It was found in several samples coming from bovine and ovine hosts showing atypical symptoms, not characteristic of known diseases at the time. Within the European Union, there are no official programs in place; however, country-specific policies apply.
Increasing scientific evidence indicates that there is a link between paratuberculosis in dairy herds and Crohn’s disease in humans. Crohn’s disease is an incurable chronic inflammatory bowel disease. Diagnosis of clinical infection is usually confirmed by the demonstration of the causal organism, M. avium ssp.
