,can't be fought by a weak immune system....but but can be fought by a
strong one,bolstered by quality forages high in trace minerals...(
I would gladly like critique....I have no experience w/ this subject -
personally.. Everything I know has been just been from reading. My
is that Brucella responds no more differently than any other infection
when a base mineral/elemental deficiency can be identified as a factor
in causing some weakness in the animal, leading to that particular
or malady..... ( I think Copper defiecient soils make weak wool)....
So ,if the herd can be given supplementation either in feed ration
as a mineral , as a chelate( better), as a 'foliar'( a joke- a drench,
the animals skin), and/or applied to the soil so that it will be tied up
the forages( best form in the long run)...
A ' study' I read showed that herds testing positive for Brucella could
completely rid of the disease w/in 4 years time. That's with only
corrective balancing applied to the soils growing the feed ration,
and for short term health of the animal -"trace" mineral
".... outlawed the selling of raw milk was because of the
unsanitary practices of some sellers in addition to the great danger of
brucellosis, a high risk disease. "
