Brucellosis: Whole Herd Testing Proves its Worth

by John Stoesser on Dec 31, 2019

Through close, whole herd testing, Montana's cattle producers have been able to maintain a Brucellosis Class Free Status as a state.  This successful program was instituted in 2010 for this exact purpose, and a very good outcome for the Montana Department of Livestock in active cooperation with industry producers throughout the state.



Although currently under quarantine, the herd involved with the positive of a single animal is otherwise brucellosis-free as determined by negative testing results of the other animals.
