USDA is trying to protect farm revenue while also trying to do public health: now H5N1 cows without symptoms.

Link. “So far … H5N1, seems only to affect lactating cows, and only temporarily”.

In symptomatic cows the milk is bad, but in asymptomatic it seems fine but has a high viral load. Unclear if sterilization is sufficient.

Fear of hurting agriculture and triggering inflation vs public health.
