Kan. Admin. Regs. § 9-3-16 - Program levels

Current through Register Vol. 41, No. 14, April 7, 2022

(a) Each participating herd shall be assigned herd status based on the following:
(1) The number of years that the participating herd has been under surveillance with no evidence of CWD; and
(2) the herd owner's compliance with K.A.R. 9-3-15 .

Herd status shall be reassigned based on the herd status of each herd from which the participating herd has received any animal.

(1) Each of the following shall start at the entry level of year one:
(A) Each herd that has not received any animal from a herd with previous herd status;
(B) each herd that has received any animal of unknown herd status; and
(C) each herd that is not currently a participating herd.
(2) Application for renewal and advancement within the CWD monitoring program shall be yearly as described in K.A.R. 9-3-15 . Each herd meeting the requirements of K.A.R. 9-3-15 shall advance one year in herd status for every year during which these requirements are met. Each participating herd with at least 10 years with no evidence of CWD shall be considered a CWD-clean herd. To maintain herd status as a CWD-clean herd, a herd shall receive animals only from other CWD-clean herds.
(c) Any owner of a herd in which all animals received have been moved directly from herds of a designated herd status within Kansas, or from a state with a CWD monitoring program equivalent to the Kansas program, may apply for the same level of herd status. However, the participating herd shall be assigned the herd status of the herd with the lowest herd status from which the participating herd has obtained any animal.
(d) Each herd that receives any animals from a herd of lesser herd status shall drop to the lowest level of herd status of the animals received. If a participating herd receives any animals of unknown or no herd status, then the herd status of the participating herd shall be reduced to year one.
