A further three Norwegian cattle herds have been confirmed with livestock associated methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus. Four farms have now been confirmed with the bacteria and 23 other operations are currently under the scrutiny of the Norwegian Veterinary Institute in the North-Trondelag region. The Institute said surveillance suggested a "strong suspicion" of MRSA in ten other herds.
