Following initial testing and autopsies, the Queensland
Government’s Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) has informed
Southern Downs Regional Council they have ruled out Anthrax as the recent cause
of death of cattle in Stanthorpe. The DAF is undertaking further testing to
determine the exact cause of death.
SDRC urges residents to avoid speculating on these matters
