   This will be a statewide detection and response plan with an initial emphasis on high risk areas and/or infected areas.  The surveillance portion of this plan may impact other wildlife management plans if funding must be diverted from those plans to fund testing at a statistically significant level. CWD surveillance will have no impacts on any existing cervid management plans.  The Montana Department of Livestock recently received approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for implementation of the herd certification program for farmed cervids.   The comment deadline is December 13, 2013 at 5:00 PM.
