Board of Animal Health

The Board of Animal Health is responsible for the prevention, control and eradication of diseases in livestock and poultry. Major emphasis is devoted to the control and eradication of brucellosis in cattle, tuberculosis in all warm blooded species, equine infectious anemia in horses and pseudo rabies in swine. Ongoing surveillance is also maintained to detect endemic and exotic diseases in Louisiana.

Major components of the overall disease control program are the existing diagnostic laboratories, and the cooperative effort between this program and the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine to improve and expand the diagnostic service programs. This division is also responsible for the licensing and supervision of livestock dealers and the chartering and supervision of auction markets.
