An outbreak of pseudorabies (PR) with CNS signs and acute death losses in feeder cattle was investigated. The cattle were in direct contact with swine. Although pruritus was not a predominant sign, PR virus was isolated from brain, thoracic spinal cord and lung specimens of affected cattle. Histopathologic findings were characteristic of a herpes virus infection.
