Management practices to minimise infectious and parasitic diseases of farmed and ranched cervids and bison


Revue Scientifique et Technique 15(1): 209-226
Management practices to minimise infectious and parasitic diseases of farmed and ranched cervids and bison
The game farming and ranching industries have evolved in the late 20th century from earlier domestication efforts in many parts of the world. Preventing transmissions of infectious diseases to, between and from farmed and ranched cervids and bison involves management components similar to those used for other species of domestic livestock. Fencing, handling systems, individual identification, knowledge of the biology of the species and potential pathogens, disease testing, quarantine and vaccination all serve to control the possible negative effects of disease on the commercial success of an operation.
