DATCP Quarantines Two Farms with Positive CWD Samples

A deer farm in Dane County and an elk farm in Richland County have been quarantined. Those quarantines are due to chronic wasting disease at both facilities.

A release by the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, says samples from a whitetail doe and elk cow tested positive for CWD.

The 10-acre Dane County farm has had 20 deer sampled for CWD since 2010. The 20-acre Richland County elk farm has had 25 elk sampled for the disease since 2007.
