Disease Control & Surveillance

Effective disease control practices can prevent animal suffering and economic losses on the farm.

Advice and information is available through the Primary Agriculture Branch and the Chief Veterinary Office (CVO).

The CVO also monitors slaughter condemnation rates and animal disease in Manitoba in partnership with the provincial Veterinary Diagnostic Services Laboratory (VDS).
