I've got cows on my mind tonight; tomorrow I have an interview for a job in an office that deals with Johne's disease, an infectious disease that affects the small intestine of ruminants. This is a good opportunity for me, because up to this point the only disease affecting cattle I knew anything about was bovine spongiform encephalopathy, and it might not otherwise have occurred to me to read up on Johne's.
