AUSTIN -- Effective Aug. 1, the Texas Animal Health Commission will no longer require brucellosis testing of adult cattle for change of ownership. According to a July 29 U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) news release, the Texas Animal Health Commission will also cease to pay the $2-per-head supplement to markets for the testing. Approximately half of the markets have indicated, however, that they intend to continue testing all or some of the adult cattle sold through their markets. For markets wishing to test, they will still be able to receive all the supplies currently being provided at no charge, including the brucellosis card test kits. The Texas Animal Health Commission inspectors will also be able to run the supplemental testing as usual, if a card positive animal is disclosed. The animal health commission officials strongly encourage voluntary testing of Texas cattle to remain vigilant in keeping Texas brucellosis-free.  . . .
