CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Livestock identification and brucellosis are on the agenda while the Wyoming Livestock Board meets in Cheyenne.
The board met Tuesday and again Wednesday to discuss those and other issues affecting Wyoming's livestock industry.
States including Colorado are putting tougher identification requirements on livestock from the Yellowstone region, where brucellosis has been a persistent problem in wildlife and some cattle herds.
Brucellosis is a disease that occurs in bison and elk. The disease can spread to cattle, causing cows to abort their calves.
