Colo. rodeo bull tested for bovine TB

DENVER ” A Colorado rodeo bull that has been in at least a dozen states is being tested for bovine tuberculosis.

Colorado Agriculture Department spokeswoman Christi Lightcap says the state’s cattle industry could lose its tuberculosis-free accreditation if the bull has the disease.

That would mean Colorado ranchers would have to do more testing before their cattle could be shipped across state lines.

Test results are expected next week.

Lightcap says the bull was tested because it came in contact with another bull that had the disease.
