NM Livestock Board Issues New Directive Regarding Vesicular Stomatitis
RSS Feeds Tuesday, August 28, 2012
The New Mexico Livestock Board has issued a new directive regarding Vesicular Stomatitis (VS), signed by state veterinarian Dr. Dave Fly.

“New Mexico continues to confirm Vesicular Stomatitis (VS) cases. While the majority of cases are now occurring in the northern portion of the state, cases in the mid and lower Rio Grande Valley are currently under investigation.

“New Mexico as a state is considered at risk for Vesicular Stomatitis. The North Eastern portion of the state (north of I-40 and east of state road 550) is considered a high-risk area.

“Livestock with lesions confirmed to have VS continue to be presented to events and these have been turned away by our inspectors. These animals were quarantined at the premises of origin.

“In order to continue to:

**More consistently and equitably apply regulatory measures.
**More properly prioritize and deploy the livestock and veterinary resources.
**Maintain control of the disease and prevent spread.
**Protect producer's access to the major receiving states.
**Continue to have public livestock events.
**Maintain interstate livestock commerce,

the following directive is issued as a supplement to the NMLB emergency rule dated August 1, 2012. Authority for this action: NMS Livestock Code 77-3-1. NMLB Rules and Regulations, Title 21, Chapter 30, Part 4-21.30.46, 21.30.4.9.

"The organizers of all public livestock events including but not limited to rodeos, ropings, horse shows, fairs, jackpots, trail rides and gymkhanas will require that a health certificate (Certificate of Veterinary Inspection, CVI) issued by an accredited, licensed veterinarian, written within the preceding five (5) days be presented prior to entry into the event. Organizers should deny entry to any participant without the required CVI."
