State veterinarians from Wyoming, Montana and Idaho are scheduled to meet next week in Denver to discuss brucellosis and their concerns over federal rules for handling the livestock disease.
Wyoming state veterinarian Walter Cook says the group wants to talk with the USDA's Animal Plant and Health Inspection Service about changing its rules for brucellosis.
He says the rules were developed when the disease was typically passed between cattle herds. These days, the disease is typically passed from wildlife to cattle.
A spokeswoman for the federal agency says a regional official will attend next week's meeting.
The meeting comes as Wyoming investigates the possibility of a second infected herd within its borders this summer.
