CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Residents of Park County in Northern Wyoming will hear the latest from state officials on the livestock disease brucellosis being found in the county.
Assistant State Veterinarian Bob Meyer and Wyoming Livestock Board Director Jim Schwartz will hold a public meeting on Tuesday evening at the Meeteetse Conservation District Office.
They will talk about herd testing, activities related to elk and updates related to impacts on Wyoming's brucellosis status.
The state tested more than 3,500 cattle in Park County after four cows in one herd tested positive for brucellosis. But no cows in 11 surrounding herds were found to have the disease, which can cause spontaneous abortions, infertility and weight loss in cattle, elk, bison and other mammals.
