Description/Abstract:
CONCENTRATIONS OF URANIUM, PLUTONIUM, AND AMERICIUM WERE MEASURED IN V ARIOUS TISSUES FROM TEN CATTLE COLLECTED FROM A HERD WHICH GRAZED ON A PASTURE JUST EAST OF THE U.S. ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISSION ROCKY FLATS PL ANT, COLORADO. THE PLUTONIUM CONCENTRATIONS WERE STATISTICALLY EQUIVAL ENT TO THOSE FOUND IN OTHER HERDS GRAZING IN AREAS WHERE THE PLUTONIUM IN SOIL WAS ABOVE THE U.S. AVERAGE LEVEL. THE AMERICIUM CONCENTRATION S WERE ABOUT 1/4 TO 1/2 OF THE PLUTONIUM-239 CONCENTRATIONS IN THE SAM E TISSUES.
