CWD Surveillance

Summary of Nationwide Chronic Wasting Disease Testing in Farmed/Captive Cervids:

Since 1998 samples from farmed/captive cervids have been tested with assistance from APHIS as concerns continued to build for the risk of introduction and transmission of CWD in farmed cervid herds. By January 2015, 68 farmed cervid herds in 15 States were reported to be CWD positive.
