Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., made the following comments following the announcement by the USDA that the U.S. achieved brucellosis class free status in cattle.



“The USDA has done a stand up job working to get a brucellosis class free status for our nation’s cattle. The Wyoming agriculture community and state agencies worked together in 2006 to get Wyoming ’s brucellosis class free status in cattle. I am pleased all states have followed suit. However, there is still work to be done to eradicate brucellosis from our free roaming elk herds. Efforts should include developing a more advanced vaccine and improved management in areas of greatest risk for the disease to be passed between wildlife and livestock.”
