Brucellosis

The Committee on Brucellosis is now the Subcommittee on Brucellosis, which reports primarily to the Committee on Cattle and Bison and others as necessary.

The purpose of the Brucellosis Committee is to provide the support and direction needed to achieve the complete eradication of the disease in the United States. After the disease is eliminated from the United States, the focus will be on protecting the United States from introduction of the disease by maintaining strict health standards, through trade negotiations and other safeguarding and biosecurity efforts for the protection of animal and public health.

The Brucellosis Committee serves as a forum and clearing house for ideas and proposals that have been submitted to it by state and federal members, industry representatives, researchers, wildlife interests and others. The Brucellosis Committee maintains two subcommittees, education and scientific, that serve to facilitate the goals of the committee.
