Table 1: Bulk tank test results for presence of Johne’s disease (JD), Mycoplasma spp. and Bovine Viral Diarrhea (BVD) in 151 dairy herds with 179 bulk tanks in Utah and parts of surrounding states. All combinations of proportion of positive samples and number of bulk tank samples collected are shown for each disease.
