Montana Farm Bureau, Stockgrowers present brucellosis management plan

The Prairie Star

The Montana Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) and the Montana Stockgrowers Association (MSGA) have begun to work with producers to develop a “hot spot” management pilot project as a solution to the brucellosis problem in the Greater Yellowstone Area (GYA). Montana, Wyoming and Idaho have all had domestic livestock infected from the wildlife brucellosis pool centered in Yellowstone National Park (YNP). Brucellosis not only affects livestock producers financially, as it causes abortions in cattle and causes the state to lose their brucellosis-free status, but the disease threatens wildlife welfare, because it also causes abortions in elk and bison.
