SD Board Tackles Old Quarantine, New PED Rules

SD Board Tackles Old Quarantine, New PED Rules
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota state veterinarian Dustin Oedekoven is taking steps to repeal a nearly 40-year-old rule requiring quarantine for baby calves entering the state without their mothers.

Oedekoven will propose the rule change at the Animal Industry Board meeting Tuesday.

Currently the state requires 60 days of separation for young calves.

Oedekoven says the rule is outdated and new federal policies require a paper trail for animals moving across states.

The South Dakota Dairy Producers support the change. The group's executive director, Roger Scheibe, says it would be one less thing farmers have to worry about.

The board will also discuss updates on the Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea, or PED, virus. Federal dollars are now available for newly infected herds to manage the virus and research vaccines.
