NM TB STATUS Q&A

 
NEW MEXICO'S BOVINE TB STATUS CHANGE: WHAT, WHEN AND WHY?
As of September 11, 2008, the USDA has downgraded New Mexico's Bovine TB status from Accredited Free to Modified Accredited Advanced (MAA). Where we had a small MAA zone in the Eastern part of our state prior to that decision, our entire state now has MAA status. This downgrade is the result of a single cow having been found to be positive for bovine tuberculosis in a feedlot in eastern New Mexico, the state's second case in less than 48 months, and is an action authorized under the Federal Bovine Tuberculosis Eradication Program.
