The New Mexico Livestock Board includes the offices of the State Veterinarian, whose team of veterinarians collaborate with various government and private sector partners to ensure that our state remains free of diseases affecting livestock.  When there are any developments such as a disease event which may affect the import or export of livestock, these are communicated here on our "What's Hot" page. Also on that page is a way to sign up to receive e-mail notifications from us.
