The Missouri Department of Conservation and the Missouri Department of Agriculture are working with state’s wildlife breeding operations and hunting preserves to track and manage the spread of chronic wasting disease (CWD).
As part of that effort, the agencies have developed the following resources:
- Certified CWD Sampler Training Guide (PDF) – refer to this manual for information on collecting and storing samples, sending samples for analysis, and more.
- Confined Wildlife Information System User Manual (PDF) – step-by-step instructions for the one stop shop for entering inventory, creating movement certificates, and creating lab submission forms. The Confined Wildlife Information System is intended to aid producers in recordkeeping and create a more streamlined process to move animals and submit lab samples.
