The USDA National Scrapie Eradication Program Needs Our Help!

The USDA is currently seeking producers to let them sample mature sheep, 14 months of age to 6 years of age, for scrapie disease at slaughter or when an animal is found dead, euthanized, or slaughtered on the farm. The sampling involves taking the obex (brain stem) and a lymph node from the head. The USDA needs to increase the number of samples to maintain a minimum number so New York State remains in "consistent status". If New York State does not reach this minimum there will be severe consequences for our state. As an incentive to producers, the USDA is offering free scrapie tags to producers who have at least one eligible sheep sample. If you can provide such sampling opportunities, please contact Shelley Vitela: Shelley Vitela, Animal Health Technician, New York, Phone: 607-201-8962 Email: Shelley.R.Vitela@usda.gov 500 New Karner Road, Albany, NY 12205
