A number of pests and disease-causing diseases are spreading across Queensland, with some farms reporting higher numbers of cattle dying than expected.
Cattle are the major animal source of disease, and the worst-affected is the so-called “pink eye” of Coccidioides vulgare, which can cause the skin and throat to swell.
The Queensland Government has warned that there is a risk of the disease spreading to other livestock, and there is no specific way to prevent it.
