It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of former NMLB Inspector Carl Manzanares.
Carl was born on March 17th, 1985. Carl proudly served as an inspector for the New Mexico Livestock Board for 7 years, from 2005 to 2013. Carl was assigned to District 9 and 26 in Area 3. He was a hard worker and a good hand. Carl pitched in to help anywhere he could and many of us worked with him during the statewide TB testing operations.
Carl is considered part of the New Mexico Livestock Board family and he will be greatly missed by all of us. Our condolences and prayers are extended to his family during this very tough time.
Below is a link to his obituary and upcoming services:

The New Mexico Livestock Board is performing scrapie surveillance testing on sheep between 1.5-5 years of age that meet the genetic profile (black-faced/ mottle-faced meat sheep and their crosses) at NO COST to the producer. Sampling consists of drawing blood and performing a biopsy. New Mexico is a scrapie-free state, but needs to test to maintain its scrapie-free status.

If interested contact the New Mexico Livestock Board at (505) 841-6161 or email Dr. Alexandra Eckhoff at alexandra.eckhoff@state.nm.us.
