Resources : Testing Laboratories

The following Laboratories are certified by the United States Department of Agriculture to test deer and elk tissues for the presence of chronic wasting disease. While the tests are extremely accurate, the process does not constitute a meat certification program…a negative result does not guarantee that the animal was free of CWD.
