Deer Tests Positive for CWD on Eau Claire County Deer Farm

Thursday, November 11th, 2021 -- 9:00 AM


(Wisconsin Ag Connection) Another white-tailed deer farm has confirmed that one of its animals has tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease.

According to the Wisconsin Ag Connection, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture reports that positive samples from a three-year-old buck in Eau Claire County were tested by the National Veterinary Services Laboratories in Ames, Iowa.

The herd of approximately 15 deer is under quarantine while an epidemiological investigation is conducted by DATCP and USDA veterinarians and staff. The ranch received the deer from a Waukesha County deer farm, which also has been placed under quarantine.

DATCP regulates deer farms for registration, recordkeeping, disease testing, movement, and permit requirements.
