After 18 years of battling Bovine Tuberculosis (bTB) in Michigan, where are we? What have we learned? What is being tried currently? These are questions on the minds of many; whether they are farmers, hunters, residents or policymakers. 

A Michigan Bovine Tuberculosis Conference will be held at the Hillman Community Center on March 12, 2016 to provide answers to some of these questions and help people of northeast Michigan better understand what can be done to reduce the impact of tuberculosis. The conference is free and open to all. The conference will feature leading researchers, officials and educators working daily to stop bTB. The human, wildlife and cattle dimensions of the disease will be addressed. 

The conference is sponsored by MDARD and The Ohio State University. Reservations are requested because lunch is provided for free. Reservations can be made by contacting Beth Giem, MDARD Atlanta office at giemb@michigan.gov or 989-785-5616. The agenda may be found online
