The Texas Animal Health Commission will be accepting public comments until Monday, July 7, at 5 p.m. on the following rules proposed at the May commission meeting. Detailed explanations of the rule proposals are available on the TAHC website at http://www.tahc.state.tx.us/regs/proposals.html.

Chapter 38, Trichomoniasis, Testing/Herd Certification. The purpose of these amendments is to change the Trichomoniasis (Trich) testing and herd certification requirements. See “Proposed Trich testing changes.”

Chapter 39, Scabies and Mange Mites, New Chapter/Repeal. The purpose of the proposed new chapter is to replace the existing chapter and make substantial changes regarding the requirements and treatment standards for livestock infested with or exposed to scabies or mange mites.

Chapter 45, Reportable Diseases, Novel Swine Enteric Coronavirus. The purpose of the proposed amendment is to add Novel Swine Enteric Coronavirus Disease (SECD) to the list of reportable diseases. SECD is a disease in swine caused by emerging porcine coronaviruses which include but are not limited to porcine epidemic diarrhea virus and porcine delta coronavirus.

Comments on the proposed regulations must be submitted in writing to Carol Pivonka, Texas Animal Health Commission, 2105 Kramer Lane, Austin, TX 78758, by fax at 512- 719-0719, or by email to comments@tahc.texas.gov.

For more information, visit www.tahc.texas.gov or call 1-800-550-8242.

Proposed Trich testing changes

The proposed amendments in Chapter 38, Trichomoniasis (Trich), Testing/Herd Certification would:

•Add testing requirements for a herd of origin when a bull from the herd is sold and subsequently found to be infected with Trich.

•Require testing when a bull is separated from its unit of origin, such as when a bull is found on property not owned by the owner/caretaker of the bull (stray), and that bull is found to be infected with Trich. Under the proposal, the pasture (unit) of origin, and pasture where the stray Trich bull was located will both be placed under hold order, and any additional bulls located there must be tested for Trich.

•Allow the Texas Animal Health Commission to evaluate the effectiveness of a herd control plan for an infected herd leading to the possible continuation or disapproval of the herd plan based on the progress or lack of progress made in controlling the disease within the herd.

•Finally, the proposal would require herds enrolled in the Trich Herd Certification Program to have perimeter fences that are adequate to prevent the ingress or egress of cattle.
