Stockgrowers applaud efforts to regain brucellosis class free status

July 9 the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal Plant Health Inspection Service upgraded Montana's brucellosis status from Class A to Class Free.

"This is a huge relief to cattle producers in Montana," said Tom Hougen, president of the Montana Stockgrowers Association. "It has only been 10 months since we were officially downgraded and the Montana Department of Livestock--especially state veterinarian Dr. Marty Zaluski--and APHIS should be commended for their efforts in returning Montana to Class Free status so quickly."

Hougen added, "The entire livestock industry in Montana should also be commended for pulling together in the face of this difficult situation and undergoing burdensome testing requirements in order for the whole state to regain its Class Free status."
