The federal and provincial government have announced that Dr. Allan Preston has been appointed to help coordinate enhanced bovine tuberculosis eradication efforts in and around Riding Mountain National Park.
Preston will guide a multi-stakeholder working group to enhance ongoing TB eradication efforts in the area.
Previous eradication efforts were led by a committee of representatives that had been criticized by some for its inability to react quickly to positive tested animals.
Preston is a Manitoba veterinarian, and has extensive experience working with bovine TB having represented the Province of Manitoba on previous working groups and task forces.
