Cervid: Western Canadian white-tailed deer
AS OF June 30, the number of livestock premises currently registered in Indiana are: avian: 5670; bovine: 23,445; camelid: 483; goats: 7305; cervids: 668; equine: 6630; fish: 429; sheep: 5732 and swine: 10,809, for a total of 39,014 premises. To date, Indiana has approximately 99% of all known premises in the state registered.

THREE CERVID farms in Indiana have tested positive for bovine tuberculosis. In late June, BOAH was notified of a TB-positive elk in a Wayne County herd. This was traced from the index herd in Franklin County identified in mid-May. Soon after, a Harrison County farm had positive laboratory tests. BOAH is working closely with the producers to eradicate the disease. More information on the current and ever-changing TB situation in Indiana can be found on the main page of the BOAH web site at:

At the July 23, 2009 quarterly board meeting BOAH reviewed proposed changes to a rule regarding TB testing for cervids. The proposed rule would require cervids moving intrastate to test for TB.

A copy of the proposed rule and a summary can be found on the BOAH web site The official version will be published in the Indiana register in August. Comments will be taken until the public hearing October 1, 2009. They can be submitted via e-mail to or through U.S. mail to: Indiana State Board of Animal Health, c/o Gary Haynes, 805 Beachway Dr., Ste. 50, Indianapolis, IN 46224. Questions can also be directed to Gary Haynes at the e-mail address listed above or by calling 317/227-0349.

I read thru the reg's they are very similar to what we have here in Michigan. I would ask for 2 years on whole herd test versus the 1 year they have recommended. I think most of In is Tb Accred right? How much will this effect In?
