A cut above: Buckhead Beef’s master meatcutter By Dallas Duncan
James Galione, production supervisor and head butcher at Buckhead Beef in College Park, Ga., stands with a rack of dry-aged beef ribs. Galione’s expertise in the dry aging process and meat industry came during 10 years of experience with the company, where he started working at age 17. Photo by Dallas Duncan

Deadline to submit ads for the July 23 issue is noon, July 9.
It’s with incredible speed that James Galione can break a beef rib subprimal into Frenched presentation ribeyes – known as the “cowboy cut” – while simultaneously explaining the process to a crowd of visitors. His impeccably precise knife skills turn carcass into restaurant-quality center-plate protein cuts in mere seconds. To the untrained eye, it appears that he was born with a butcher knife in hand. But Galione is a relative newcomer to the meat and beef industries. Instead of growing up raising cattle on a family farm, he turned his summer job opening boxes at Buckhead Beef 10 years ago into a lifetime career. “Butchers, meatcutters, head cutters, master butchers, they’re a dying breed. They’re just not around anymore. Or they’re aging and they’re retiring and they’re riding off into the beef sunset,” said Richard Blahnik, vice president of operations and human resources at Buckhead Beef in College Park, Ga. “James is an incredible success story, I think for him personally and I think for us, too, as a company. James is unique in that he did start at absolutely ground level 10 years ago. He started when he was 17 years old. He was the minimum age we could even allow someone to work. He didn’t know anything about this business. At 17, you don’t know much about anything to begin with. He came in and put his head down and worked really hard and always expressed a desire to do more or learn more. … Here we are, 10 years later and he’s our head butcher.”
Galione’s mother worked as the human resources manager for Buckhead Beef, and he thought it would make for a good summer job opportunity. “I started working here just picking up lugs in the cut shop, opening boxes and doing that stuff on the weekends and summertime,” he said. “I finished school and everything and stayed here throughout and kept growing.” Galione made the rounds, working in just about every department on the floor, including seafood, before coming back to butchery. “I stood there and watched … the tenderloin line and I said, ‘I think I can do that,’” he said. “The manager at that time brought me a knife and that was it. I started prepping tenderloins and started learning it from there.” Galione’s favorite beef subprimal to break down is the one with cuts he loves to eat: the short loin, out of which comes the bone-in filet, porterhouse, T-bone, Kansas City strip and Manhattan strip. $12 million worth of inventory comes through the Buckhead Beef facility every year, Blahnik said. On the beef line, 65,000 to 70,000 pounds of product come through each week, making up 90 percent of the company’s production. “We primarily focus on Certified Angus Beef, and then we bring in all kinds of beef from all the major packers. We do all grades from Select to Prime,” said Sierra Coggins, director of food safety and quality assurance. “We try to focus on high-end or white tablecloth restaurants.” See BEEF, page 12
Highway 37 designated first official Georgia Grown Trail By Dallas Duncan Georgia’s newest attraction doesn’t have roller coasters or tall water slides. Instead, it invites visitors to tour the states’ biggest industry: agriculture. “Agritourism has become a big thing here in our community,” said Chris Burns of Patten Pecans in Lakeland, Ga. “[Visitors] see where the pecans are grown, the different products that we produce and sell that are pecan-related and Georgia-grown.” Patten Pecans is one of 24 official stops on the newly dedicated Georgia Grown Trail 37, which traverses 157 miles through south Georgia, from Fort Gaines all the way to Homerville. “They’re promoting Georgia Grown and Georgia items: stop and see Georgia, stay at farms and buy stuff,” said Cindy Norton, Department agritourism director. “There’s a lot of food products on this. There’s wineries, there’s jams and jellies, there’s pecan plantations. The olive farms are on here.”
The idea for a trail started out nearly three years ago when a “proliferation” of south Georgia wineries cropped up. With so many other agribusinesses and farms along the way, it was decided that the region needed a trail of its own, said Jerry Connell, president of Georgia Grown Trail 37. Talks with the Department started two years ago to make Trail 37 the first Georgia Grown trail. Asking to be a branded highway was a “pretty tall order,” Connell said, but the idea was presented and passed with legislative approval. Signage will be placed along the entire 157 miles of Trail 37. “Along that corridor … is over a million acres of land in cultivation, growing everything from berries to pecans to vegetables,” Connell said. “Right now the trail features about 24 trail stops. … It’s something you could make a destination out of.” Tour stops include George T. Bagby State Park and Lodge in Fort Gaines; White Oak
Pastures in Bluffton; Still Pond Vineyard in Arlington; Gin Creek Plantation in Hartsfield; Sparkman’s Cream Valley, Craftwood Farms and Packer Produce in Moultrie; Lauri Jo’s in Norman Park; Reed Bingham State Park and Evergreen Produce in Adel; Horse Creek Winery in Sparks and Nashville; Lawson Peaches in Morven; Southern Grace Farms in Enigma; Our Place Hotel and Nashville Farmers Market in Nashville; Little Duck Farms in Ray City; The Ford Farm, Georgia Olive Farms and Gayla’s Grits in Lakeland; and Inn on Virginia, Avriett House and Bruce’s Honey Shack in Homerville. “The trail is a concept that we believe will promote southern Georgia, rural Georgia, because Highway 37 runs through some very small towns. That’s what we like about it,” Connell said. “What we’re hoping to do is draw some people off the interstate … who will make this their destination to spend an afternoon or a weekend.” Connell said in the works are itineraries for a See TRAIL, page 6

GEORGIA GROWN PROFILE: AgGeorgia Farm Credit Dedicated to Georgia farmers for nearly a century
By Maggie Dudacek, summer intern For almost 100 years, AgGeorgia Farm Credit served as one of the state’s prime lending institutions for agricultural producers and rural Georgia. As a cooperative and a committed supporter of agriculture, AgGeorgia’s borrowers are also its lenders, which helps the company to return its profits back to its members. “As agriculture goes in this state, so goes AgGeorgia Farm Credit,” said Corey Cottle, director of marketing. “With Georgia Grown … we felt that the program and Commissioner Black’s office had the best interest of our farmers at heart and thought that the program presented a great opportunity to brand Georgia-grown products and add value to them, potentially putting more profits back into the pockets of
this state’s farmers.” Both Georgia Grown and AgGeorgia share a passion for giving back to their members. By volunteering at events sponsored by Georgia Grown, the employees of AgGeorgia give their time discussing financial opportunities for small farmers who are just now beginning production. With its commitment to assisting and helping others, especially to its members and Georgia farmers, AgGeorgia is one of the biggest promoters of the state’s largest industry. “It is the No. 1 industry in Georgia and deserves an appropriate level of respect. … Without agriculture, many of the jobs in this state seemingly unrelated to ag wouldn’t exist,” Cottle said. “The positives that come out of this program will result in a stronger cooperative for our borrowers and an overall stronger Georgia economy.”

FARMERS AND CONSUMERS MARKET BULLETIN – 404-656-3722
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 25, 2014
GUEST COLUMN: Celebrating beef and debunking myths, one at a time Even though we like to celebrate beef 365 days a year, Gov. Nathan Deal once again signed a proclamation stating that June is Georgia Beef Month! As I work to support Georgia’s producers by promoting the wholesome beef they provide and educating consumers about beef, I come across many misconceptions and myths that are centered around beef. In BENTLEY honor of Georgia Beef Month, I’d like to spend some time debunking some of those myths and provide you with the cold, hard, beefy facts. Myth: Beef is not heart-healthy. Truth: When it comes to your health, there is no room for uncertainty, and we understand that. Despite all of the negative and backwards articles you may have read about beef being a risk factor, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Recent research has shown that incorporating beef into your heart-healthy diet can improve cholesterol levels. The Beef in an Optimal Lean Diet, or BOLD, study proves that eating lean beef daily decreases LDL (“bad” cholesterol). So, enjoy three to four ounces of lean beef every day to maintain your heart health! Myth: Family farms are a thing of the past. Truth: One of the most gut-wrenching misconceptions out is often discussed using the dreaded term “factory farm.” Truth be told, more than 97 percent of farms and ranches in the United States are family owned and operated. Many of those operations have been passed down from generation to generation where the passion for the cattle and the beef industry runs deep. Our cattlemen will tell you that it’s in the family
blood and they will be raising those cattle until the good Lord takes them home. To them, it’s a way of life. They care for those cattle like you would your children. After all, they feed their families with the same beef they send to the grocery store for us. So, those of you looking for “home-grown beef,” look no further! Myth: Decreasing your consumption of beef will improve our sustainability. Truth: Contrary to popular belief, beef producers have reduced their environmental burden by 9 percent in five years. For cattlemen, sustainability means ensuring the land will provide for generations to come. They continually work to help preserve water quality, invest in the land and protect wildlife and native vegetation. Many cattle ranchers operate on land that would otherwise not be utilized because not all land is suitable for crop production. Go ahead; enjoy that steak or burger while cattlemen continually strive to improve our sustainability. Join us in celebrating beef and our 15,000 cattle producers from around the state who work each and every day to provide us with this safe, wholesome protein we find neatly packaged and ready for us at the meat case. Happy Beef Month, Georgia! Suzanne Bentley is the director of industry information and public relations for Georgia Beef Board. She works to promote and educate consumers across Georgia to fulfill the mission of the Beef Checkoff. Bentley is a May 2013 graduate of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College with a degree in diversified agriculture. She lives in Ashburn, Ga., with her husband Daniel.

TRAIL: Path winds through south Georgia farms, wineries and more From Page 1
Georgia Grown Trail 37 makes its official debut on June 2 as Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Gary W. Black, center, cuts the ribbon at the route’s dedication ceremony while surrounded by representatives of the 24 tour stops. Trail 37 is the first officially branded Georgia Grown trail in the state. Photo courtesy Jerry Connell
two-day tour, an Eastern tour and a Western tour. There are also plans for a “Taste of the Trail” event featuring chefs and ingredients plucked from the tour stops’ fields. Connell said Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Gary W. Black told him that Trail 37 might be the first Georgia Grown trail, but it wouldn’t be the last. Upcoming agriculture-related trails include Highway 41 from Forsyth to Valdosta, Ga., traveling from north to south Georgia; the North Georgia Farm Trail, which has already been voted on by the commission but not the legislature; and the existing Farmeander in Morgan and Newton counties, Norton said. There is also a Scenic Byway for Enduring Farmland in Pulaski and Wilcox counties, though it is not decided yet whether that route will pursue becoming a Georgia Grown trail. There are certain requirements a trail must meet with the Georgia Grown Commodity Commission and the state legislature before becoming a Georgia Grown Trail. Legislation for Trail 37 was introduced during
the 2013 session to designate the route and instruct the Georgia Department of Transportation to create and install signs. Trail 37 is managed as a nonprofit and tour stops, with the help of grant money, cover advertising and promotion costs, Connell said. The trail is another step in agriculture becoming a highlight of the state’s tourism industry, which brought in a record high of $53.6 billion in 2013, according to a Department news release. “We know that tourism in the state of Georgia is a big business and tourism is economic development in the truest sense of the word. … Agritourism is very big and is getting much bigger,” Connell said. “Why wouldn’t it follow that our biggest industry, agriculture, foster a bigger industry in agritourism for people interested in how agriculture works and where their food comes from and how these things grow?” Summer intern Maggie Dudacek contributed to this story.

agriCULTURE Letter from the editor
June is, aside from Christmas, one of my favorite times of the year. The weather is beautiful, the temperatures are warm, people aren’t in disastrous moods because they’re about to go on vacations … oh, and it’s Georgia Beef and Dairy Month. We commemorated Dairy Month in the June 11 issue, and I sacrificed myself to eat the leftover photo props from the front page. Let me tell y’all something, few things make my taste buds tingle these days the way peppermint ice cream and gelato do! But no matter how much I enjoy ice cream (and yogurt, frozen yogurt, Greek yogurt, milk, cream, butter …) beef is king of my menu. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a proud meatetarian who’s eaten everything, quite literally, from head to tail derived from a number of animal species, but there’s just something about beef that makes my heart grow three sizes bigger. My first foray into the beef world was as a college junior on the Georgia Beef Team. This was a group of students that went out on weeknights to grocery stores and handed out samples and talked to customers about beef. The things that people thought – or insisted that they “knew” – about beef was astounding. Through two years of Georgia Beef Team and 1.5 years working with Georgia Cattlemen’s Association and Georgia Beef Board, I would like to say that I’ve heard it all during ag days, trade shows and other events, but what I’ve seen and heard is probably not even close: u Beef comes from (insert animal name here). Nope, beef does not come from pigs. Or deer. Or horses (sorry for that dig, Europe …). It comes from cattle. u The only way to eat a steak is well-done to kill off bacteria. Whoops, nope, this is incorrect! Fun fact about cooking beef, steaks and roasts do not need to be cooked well-done in order to kill any foodbourne bacteria. A good sear on the surface and rare to mediumrare cooking temperatures will do the trick because the inside of that cut is not exposed to surfaces that could harbor such organisms. Ground beef, however, needs to be cooked to medium or mediumwell inside because when you grind beef, the entire surface area of everything on the outside and inside of that burger touches equipment at some point, so a higher cooking temperature is required for food safety. u You know it’s a boy cow if it has horns. First things first, “boy cows” are actually bulls (intact males), steers (castrated males) or bullocks (males castrated at an older age). Cows are adult females that have had a calf. Second thing, a bovine’s sex does not determine whether or not it has horns, so female cattle can be horned and male cattle can be polled (no horns). u Calf vs. calve. A quick lesson: A calf is a baby bovine. Calve is the verb meaning “to give birth to a calf.” Calves is the plural of calf. So cows calve calves or sometimes they just calve a calf. Try saying that five times fast! u Would you like sauce with your steak? Unless you’re eating something that’s been dried, reheated, boiled, pounded and then regrilled … your answer to this should be a very loud “NO.” Beef has a flavor all of its own. It’s savory and distinct from other domestic meats and you don’t need to mask it with a sauce, especially a steak. My cousin Rachel, who I love to death, learned my stance on this issue very well recently during a family trip. She bought KETCHUP to put on her high-choice Certified Hereford FILET MIGNON. And then wondered why I lecture her about it for 10 minutes at the supper table. I could go on for days talking about beef, but I’ll leave you with this (since I know you’re dying to put down the paper and go cook one of those recipes on page seven). The Georgia beef industry is one of the nation’s best. It’s made up of amazing people who are dedicated to caring for their cattle, keeping their pastureland at peak productivity and investing in further research to better cattle farmers and farm families across the state and country. I was blessed to be a direct part of it for several years and am blessed today to still have great friends and allies with Cattlemen’s license plates on the fronts of their trucks. They’re a great group of people and they want to talk to you about what they do and why they do it. So if you’ve got questions about beef, don’t ask Dr. Google. Go ask one of them and get the straight answer. And if you ask Ernie Ford, he might sit you down with his (almost) world-famous calf fries to talk about it.

Atlanta City Council passes urban agriculture zoning ordinance By Dallas Duncan ly.
Georgia’s biggest city just got a little more farm-friend-
Atlanta City Council members passed a new urban agriculture zoning ordinance earlier this month, the product of four years’ of drafting, redrafting and presentation by the Atlanta Local Food Initiative, which allows for community gardens and market gardens to dot the metro landscape. “This is a great start, laying the legal foundation that can support education and production farms in the city of Atlanta as well as community gardens. And it’s a great way for us to foster new growth and our local food movement in this area,” Julie Self, former director of ALFI, said during a press conference on June 10. Urban agriculture is defined as the production of crops and animals that are distributed around a city to feed the local population, said Suzanne Girdner, executive director of ALFI. “Before the ordinance, there were not positive rights for residents to farm or garden. It meant that the public or neighbors of a garden or farm could challenge a garden or farm operation as a public nuisance,” Girdner said. “It was an unrecognized use of land in the zoning code … Also, it meant that market gardeners could not apply for a business license.” The ordinance lays legal infrastructure for existing growers by expressly permitting community gardens and market gardens, giving producers confidence to continue their work without interference or the threat of being closed down, she said. It allows for various methods of food production, excluding livestock and bees, which are already addressed in Atlanta’s zoning code. “In cities across America, zoning ordinances are being amended right now to promote urban agriculture,” said Mindy Goldstein, director of Turner Environmental Law Clinic at the Emory University School of Law. “Local food production is a local issue. We decided to remove the red tape and a lot of the complicated requirements … And what we managed to do … is prepare a streamlined ordinance that really will allow growers to grow food in this city without being super worried about all the kind of loopholes and legal technicalities that some folks in other cities are being faced with.” Other Georgia areas are working to pass similar ordinances, including Savannah, Augusta, East Point and
DeKalb County, Girdner said. Goldstein said that if Atlanta can pass such an ordinance, there’s no reason why other areas in Georgia cannot. “Atlanta is the capital of the South. We’re the leading city, we lead the South. So what happens here has a reverberating effect throughout the entire region,” said K. Rashid Nuri, chief executive officer and president of Atlanta’s Truly Living Well farm. “This urban agriculture zoning policy in place, it will enable us … to provide leadership not only to this region, but to the entire country.” The ordinance affects more than just Atlanta farmers, however. “We do all understand how important that is from a health standpoint, from a food desert standpoint … to have vacant lots in town to legally have both urban gardens and market gardens,” Atlanta City Council member Mary Norwood said. “It is a huge step in the right direction for Atlanta, for preserving green space, for enhancing our communities throughout the whole city.” Ceasar Mitchell, Atlanta City Council president, said the policy tackles three things. “No. 1, addressing the issue of food security. Having an urban agricultural ordinance in place allows for all of you … to proliferate the availability of the food. The sky is the limit. The second thing I believe is that this is an opportunity for us to educate young people. This is a place where people will really gain an appreciation for not just urban agriculture, but you can produce your own food,” he said. “For the third thing, we are really on the precipice of really creating a strong, entrepreneurial economic development kind of movement as it relates to urban agriculture. It’s something we need in our city.” Girdner said the ordinance’s passage is a “perfect recipe” for the city’s continued transformation into a farmfriendly area. “Take a disused or abandoned parcel of land, mix in garden plots, neighbors, gardeners, seeds and water, and you will get a more resilient community that’s eating healthy local food,” she said. “Agriculture has a way of revitalizing a community as it builds self-sufficiency. Urban ag is critical in offering healthy meal options to residents with few options or access to fresh produce. This is particularly important as the state looks at addressing the issue of obesity and food deserts, which exist in urban and rural areas.” Summer intern Maggie Dudacek contributed to this story.

BEEF: 17-year-old works his way up to head butcher in 10 years
VISIT WITH A VET:
From Page 1 Buckhead Beef started with a handful of people cutting portion steaks for select customers in the Buckhead, Atlanta area, Blahnik said. The company grew throughout the 1980s and ‘90s, but what really put it on the map was the 1996 Olympic Games. “Buckhead was awarded the protein contract for the Olympic Village and for all of the athletes and all of the athletes’ coaches and staff,” Blahnik said. “That kind of really opened up Pandora’s box, if you will.” Sysco purchased Buckhead Beef in 1999. Before then, the foodservice distributor didn’t have any “center of the plate” protein companies, Blahnik said. Now it’s the flagship of more than 20 meat and seafood businesses in the US and Canada owned by Sysco. When beef subprimals – cuts such as the rib, chuck, loin and round – are brought into Buckhead Beef, they head straight into the wet aging cooler for 30 to 40 days. Cuts are debagged, prepped, trimmed and either hand- or machine-cut to customer specifications before being placed in Cryovac bags for aging, Blahnik said. “We wet-age it first, 14 to 21 days. Then we open the Cryovacs and put them on racks to dry out in a humidity controlled, air-controlled room that dries out the meats. The outside actually looks like beef jerky, but when you cut that part off, it’s just bright red deliciousness,” Galione said. “It’s basically controlled rotting, but by doing that you break down the enzymes in the meat and release the tenderness and flavor. It’s amazing. It’s my favorite.” There’s a fine line to dry aging beef the perfect amount. Too much and it dries out; too little and it tastes “like a regular steak.” “I can’t even compare the two,” Galione said. “Going from start to finish in each cooler you can smell the difference. It’s intense. It goes from just smelling like meat to getting kind of a cheesy, funky kind of smell, then it smells just amazing at the end.”
Be it dry aging or working with Buckhead’s Executive Chef Matt Richardson, Galione makes an impression in every aspect of the beef industry he works with. “He does a very nice job at anything he does and he’s a perfectionist at what he does,” Coggins said. “Even when it comes to talking to customers, he kind of understands the dynamics of the animals so he’s able to convey that understanding.” Galione learned the animal dynamics from breaking down whole grass-finished beef carcasses as part of a contract with Whole Foods Market. “It’s intimidating to want to learn how to break down an animal,” Blahnik said. “Breaking down and learning all of the muscles, the animal science behind it is pretty neat and he’s learned it quite well.” He also gets to teach it. “He didn’t come from an agricultural background; he didn’t come from a farming background. He learned it. He learned it to an extent to where he can convey that message to a customer who maybe has a similar background,” Coggins said. Galione works hand-in-hand with Richardson on tours, demonstrations and Sysco trainings. “That’s a lot of fun. I like doing that stuff,” Galione said. “Then I get to experience the other end of it too, where a chef will actually cook that stuff and get to interact with all the customers.” Buckhead Beef customers want a personal butcher, someone to work with directly to plan affordable, high-quality menu items, Blahnik said. “He’s our customer’s butcher,” Blahnik said. “He does all the training to Sysco sales reps. He presents the primal breakdowns to all of our customers. He’s very active in the culinary center with our executive chef, Matt Richardson. He’s presentable, he’s articulate, he’s good and he’s just worked his way up from nothing to being the face of the company.”

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 25, 2014
Visit with a Georgia veterinarian in this monthly feature. This edition comes from Dr. Sue Turnquist of the Tifton Veterinary Diagnostic Lab. Mild winter and spring and hot weather and rain can set up a perfect storm for insect-borne diseases in livestock. With increased populations of ticks in most areas of south Georgia, outbreaks of anaplasmosis are possible. Anaplasmosis is an infectious disease of cattle that causes destruction of red blood cells, resulting in potentially fatal anemia. The Tifton lab has seen cases of anaplasmosis in Georgia cattle herds in recent years. Transmission and clinical signs: Anaplasmosis in cattle is caused primarily by Anaplasma marginale, a bacterium that invades red blood cells. A number of different tick species have been shown to harbor the bacteria, and cows are infected when an infected tick feeds. Anything that can transfer blood between cattle, including needles and equipment such as dehorners that are not cleaned between animals, can result in transmission of the disease. The bacteria can also cross the placenta and infect a mid- to late-term fetus, but late-term abortion is usually due to severe anemia in the dam. Calves and younger cattle may become infected, but they are much more resistant to the development of clinical signs than older cattle. Cows that recover from the acute phase of the disease will become lifelong carriers and may be sources of infection for future outbreaks. These cattle are usually clinically normal, but can relapse and develop symptoms following significant stress. Brahman cattle generally have a greater resistance to infection than the European breeds. Clinical signs are not observed during the initial stages of the disease. Once the body recognizes the presence of the blood parasite, the immune system destroys the organism along with the red blood cells in which it resides. Clinical signs appear once enough red blood cells are destroyed to result in anemia. Initially, affected cows have elevated body temperature and milk production will decrease or cease in lactating animals. As the anemia progresses, affected cows may appear weak or lag behind the rest of the herd. Pallor of the skin or mucous membranes may be noted. In later stages the animals may show excitement and aggressive behavior, exhibit respiratory distress such as open-mouthed breathing or become recumbent and unable to rise. Abortion may be the only clinical sign in fat, late pregnancy cows. Handling affected cattle with clinical signs of anemia may result in respiratory distress or death and is generally not recommended. Diagnosis: Clinical diagnosis is usually based on typical clinical signs, demonstration of anemia and the presence of typical organisms in stained blood smears. The absence of organisms in the blood smear does not rule out the possibility of infection, and there are serological, or blood serum, tests available to confirm the diagnosis. Submission samples should include a fresh blood smear and blood samples in EDTA and clot tubes. Cattle that die of anemia will be pale or yellow with thin, watery blood, like cherry Kool-Aid. The lungs will be pale and the spleen enlarged and bulging on cut surface. There are no typical microscopic lesions, but major organs including the lung, liver, spleen, liver, kidney, heart and intestine can be submitted in formalin to rule out other disease processes. If the carcass is fresh, blood smears are helpful in making a diagnosis. The organisms can also be observed in impression smears made from the spleen. Body cavity fluids – thoracic, pericardial or abdominal fluid – or blood from the right ventricle of the heart heart can be tested for anaplasmosis with a c-ELISA assay. The Tifton diagnostic lab can provide comprehensive testing if anaplasmosis is suspected. If you suspect your cattle herd might be infected with anaplasmosis, contact the Tifton or Athens diagnostic labs at 229386-3340 or 706-542-5568, respectively.
