You bought a registered bred heifer at a registered sale and then 2 months later she started acting poor. After a month of vet visits and medicine, it became obvious she had to be put down. She is gone and I took her to the state lab and know the cause of death. She also tested positive for Johne's disease. The seller has been notified.

Ummmmmm heifer? Johnes only affects cattle 5-8yrs of age. It's extremely rare in young animals or basically they have it but don't show symptoms until five-eight years of age. It's likely your whole herd has it now.
The official cause of death was lymphoma. She was covered up with it (cancer). I think regardless of the cancer I should get a refund just because of the Johnes.
