Wyoming Brucellosis Coordination Team

In 2004, Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal created the Wyoming Brucellosis Coordination Team to chart a course for brucellosis management in the future. The team presented the governor with 28 recommendations for actions to help manage and control the disease in elk, wild bison, and cattle. Today, many of those actions are being implemented, and the combined efforts of agencies, landowners, and others are bringing measurable success in the battle against this stubborn disease.
