That is a pretty good analogy of where we are today , where we have been and where we are headed. Impressed that it came out of Arizona , not really known for cervid farming.

What they should have noted was that they were not all brain and node tested. They came up with 80% with only one test used when in fact it was more like 20% of the herd infected. The original writer was of course on the state side so they used the 80% numbers to make the....Sky is falling..theory on that family farm and herd.

I was at that depopulation and helped Dr. Haley collect samples along with Todd Landt and Chuck Hutchinson.


About 25% of the animals were lymph positive and obex negative. * Of all the animals we killed, only maybe a half a dozen we called on the skinny side or thin, which is not abnormal in any herd. *There were NO sick or falling over animals, like many of the pictures show of CWD.*


I thought this was an excellent article, one of a few that was not slanted against deer farmers by an outdoor writer that has a biased against farmers.
