A herd of more than 500 dairy cows on the island of Gotland has been isolated by the Swedish Board of Agriculture after salmonella was detected, reports news agency TT.

Usually, the island is relatively free from the bacteria.

"There's approximately one case per year," county veterinarian Agneta Karlsson Norström tells news agency TT, adding, "it's not good that it's here, but we know it's hard to protect oneself from."

Salmonella bacteria die during the pasteurization process, therefore, the farm can still deliver milk, however none of the animals can leave the farm.
