Trichomoniasis is a venereal disease of cattle that is known to cause infertility, open cows, and occasional abortions in cows and heifers.

"The health of the livestock in our state is of upmost concern to the Nebraska Department of Agriculture," said NDA Director Greg Ibach. "Trichomoniasis is a disease of concern to Nebraska's beef and dairy producers; therefore, it is extremely important to have regulations in place to help safeguard our animals, as well as our livestock production industry."

The import order is in addition to the current Nebraska Animal Importation Act and includes important importation requirements for beef and dairy animals before being imported into Nebraska. Individuals that are planning to import cattle into the state should contact the NDA, Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) at 800-572-2437 for more information.
