Anaplasmosis in Beef Cattle
Virginia Cooperative Extenion
Anaplasmosis is an infectious disease of cattle that causes anemia, abortions, and death. Adult cattle have the most severe symptoms of the disease. Virginia farmers should be concerned about anaplasmosis, as it can present significant economic loss. If you have anaplasmosis on your farm, work closely with your veterinarian to develop the best management program based on the number of animals affected and the prevalence of anaplasmosis in your area. If anaplasmosis has not been a problem on your farm, management programs and monitoring will help your herd continue to be anaplasmosis free.
