I will go with C but my explaination is bit different.

A cattle cannot be injured and killed at the same time. It is either injured or killed. Only C makes this distinction by using "or"
Except for "and" there is no problem with choice A.

I agree with anandnk on this one. Those cattle that were injured OR killed.

another adding to your explanation. there should be sequence of tenses: first they "had been infected" by bla-bla, and then "were killed" or whatever.
and only after reading this question i saw in dictionary that the word "cattle" has plural form. thanks, vivek ;)

In this sentence, the first problem that arises is killed/badly injured. It is not logical to be both killed AND badly injured, to be killed OR badly injured is logical. Choices A and B are eliminated - killed and badly injured. Have been (E) is in the present perfect tense, but the fire occurred in the past (last spring). Of choices C and D, C is best because D does not make it clear that the fire occurred last spring.
