In late September, bovine tuberculosis (TB) was detected in a cow that originated in southeastern Alberta. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is leading the disease investigation. Information about bovine tuberculosis and the most up-to-date information about the investigation is available on the CFIA website. The CFIA and Alberta Agriculture and Forestry continue to work closely together as the investigation progresses.

The investigation process and protocols underway are in place to protect the health of Canadian livestock and maintain market access. For cattle producers affected by the CFIA investigation and quarantines, there is an existing suite of financial programs that may provide support. Staff at Alberta’s Agriculture Financial Services Corporation (AFSC) are available to help answer producer questions and provide them with guidance in accessing these programs.
