North Dakota recently unveiled a new weapon against livestock disease outbreaks — a mobile lab made from a customized fifth-wheel trailer that can travel anywhere in the state and provide expert support. The fully equipped lab will speed up disease identification. And quick results mean authorities can rapidly institute containment measures to reduce livestock and economic losses. The unit also will aid in the state’s animal-ID initiative. It is funded with state and federal funds, and will operate cooperatively with Cooperative Extension, North Dakota State University, Dickinson State University, the North Dakota Department of Health, and the state veterinarian.
