LANSING (WKZO) -- Cattle farmers in the Saginaw area are breathing a little easier with word from state officials that Saginaw County is considered free of Bovine Tuberculosis.  The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development tested nearly 26-thousand cattle on 373 farms, depopulating three farms.

A meeting will be held for farmers on January 30th at the Jonesfield Township Hall to discuss the efforts to keep the area free of bovine TB.  The investigation started when a Saginaw County dairy farm was discovered to be bovine TB positive in March 2013.
