NAC 571.365 Procedure for observing and testing livestock after discovery of exposure to brucellosis. (NRS 571.120, 571.150)
1. Once brucellosis has been epidemiologically traced to a receiving or originating herd in Nevada, the Director will place that herd under a written hold order.
2. If the Director notifies the owner of a herd that his or her herd has been classified as an adjacent, originating or receiving herd, he or she shall, within 30 days after the notification, develop a written plan for observing and testing the herd. The development of the plan must be done in cooperation with the federal veterinarian for the area. The plan must include a schedule for testing the herd for brucellosis. If such a plan is not developed within the prescribed 30-day period, the owner of the herd shall confer with the federal veterinarian for the area and an epidemiologist to formulate a suitable plan. If the herd is pastured on public land, a representative of the agency administering that land must be asked to participate in the conference.
3. If all animals in an adjacent, originating or receiving herd react negatively, the entire herd must be given a second test for brucellosis. The second test must be completed from 6 months to 8 months after the herd which was originally infected is released from quarantine.
4. If the plan of testing requires testing of all the animals in an adjacent, originating or receiving herd, the testing must be accomplished at the earliest opportunity, but not later than 6 months after the date on which the development of the plan is completed.
5. An owner, or his or her representative, will be notified by the Director within 30 days after his or her herd had been shown by epidemiological tracing to have been associated with an infected herd. The notice will be given by personal service and by mail.
6. The owner, or his or her representative, of a herd which has been adjacent to, was originated from, or received infected cattle will be notified by the Director within 30 days after the herd which was originally infected is released from quarantine.
