CWD Sample Collector Training Set For Panhandle, Trans-Pecos

Two classes scheduled in October and November

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas Animal Health Commission, and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service have partnered to offer two chronic wasting disease (CWD) sample collector training classes in the Panhandle and Trans-Pecos regions.

Classes will run from 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 26 in Amarillo at the AgriLife Extension Building, 6500 W. Amarillo Blvd.; and Nov. 17 in Van Horn at the Van Horn Convention Center, 1801 W. Broadway St.

To register for either training class, contact Laura Leal with TAHC at (512) 650-0475 or email [email protected]

Individuals who participated in training last year must attend this year’s training to receive necessary check station supplies.

Space is limited to the first 50 participants for each training. Registration is mandatory to attend.

Individuals who complete a 3-hour classroom and hands on workshop will be certified to collect postmortem samples from CWD susceptible species, such as white-tailed deer, mule deer, elk, red deer and sika under the TAHC Certified CWD Postmortem Sample Collector training program.

Current regulations mandate testing for CWD susceptible species taken in parts of the Panhandle and Trans-Pecos.

Details on testing requirements under the TAHC herd certification program, and additional information about CWD is available online.
