Michigan officials say they've recently confirmed bovine tuberculosis in two Alpena County beef herds.
State agricultural officials say Thursday that bovine TB has been detected in 52 cattle herds and four privately owned cervid operations, which usually involve deer, since testing began in 1998.
A bovine TB public information meeting for cattle owners within a 10-mile radius of the herds with the two newly discovered cases will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Alpena Community College.
Both farms are quarantined and no cattle may enter or leave the farm premises until testing clears the farms of bovine TB.
