All infected cattle sent to an abattoir must be accompanied by a Red Cross permit from the state veterinarian. Farmers should ensure that the abattoir accepts Brucella-positive cattle. These cattle should only be slaughtered with special precautions at the end of a day’s slaughtering and the abattoir must be disinfected immediately after the slaughter of any batch of infected animals. Abattoir workers handling infected carcasses should wear the correct personal protective equipment and clothing. Highly infectious material such as reproductive organs, the udder and lymph nodes should not be roughly cut but handled cautiously to prevent the formation of aerosols.
