Salmonella are a species of bacteria that cause many diseases in cattle. These include digestive tract infections (severe diarrhea), respiratory system disease (pneumonia) and central nervous system (brain) infections. The number of cattle farms experiencing problems caused by Salmonella has grown in recent years. Risk factors for this disease include new cattle introduction (movement) and various stressors such as weather extremes, processing procedures and dietary changes.
