Texas Cattle Fever Tick Update from Brodie Miller, DVM, Texas Animal Health Commission
The battle continues against this age old pest which poses a huge threat to the livestock industry of Texas. This talk will address the history of the Cattle Fever Tick Eradication Program, the biology of the cattle fever tick, the basics of the eradication process, and provide an update as to the current status of cattle fever tick outbreaks throughout South Texas.
Now in our fifteenth year of commitment to education, outreach, and service, we have trained more than 400 Master Naturalist volunteers who contributed more than 250,000 service hours to their communities.
