AUSTIN -- A case of anthrax has been confirmed in a cow that died in Crockett County.
“There is no cause for alarm, but we do urge ranchers in the area to vaccinate their grazing livestock, to prevent losses to this naturally occurring disease,” said Bob Hillman, head of the Texas Animal Health Commission. “We have heard concerns about anthrax in other counties this summer, but the only laboratory confirmed case is in Crockett County.”
