    More about map data: All samples are processed by the Animal Disease Research and Diagnostic Laboratory at South Dakota State University. Currently, samples from all aspects of the industry, including feedlots, as well as cow+calf/stocker and dairy operations, are submitted by Boehringer Ingelheim professional services veterinarians and representatives across the United States. Although these samples don’t represent the total number of positive tests, the data are statistically significant and provide a good representation of the BVDV strains prevalent in each area. This map includes data from November 2017 through the most current cases reported on 07/14/2019.
