Abstract:
In this study we have characterized Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) isolates from a herd of Korean beef cattle in Hongsung, Korea. Of the 30 skin test positive cattle samples, isolations of M. bovis were made from 11 animals. Seven animals out of 11 were comprised of Korean native cattle purchased from herd of southern regions in 2008 and the others (n = 4) were natural additions (offspring) of these cattle. Using the spoligotyping and Variable Numbers of Tandem Repeat (VNTR) typing, we demonstrated that bovine tuberculosis was transmitted to a herd by the introduction of animal belonging to a geographically separated location.
