BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State Veterinarian Susan Keller is urging North Dakota ranchers to make sure their livestock are vaccinated against anthrax, after the first confirmed case of the year in a Barnes County beef cow.
 
     Anthrax bacteria spores lie dormant in the soil and become active under extreme weather conditions such as flooding or drought. North Dakota usually has a few anthrax cases every year. An outbreak in 2005 is believed to have killed more than 1,000 cattle, bison, horses, sheep, llamas, and farmer deer and elk.
 
     Keller says an effective anthrax vaccine is readily available through licensed veterinarians, but it takes about a week for immunity to take hold.

Dave Nehring of Bismarck is the new Game and Fish Department advisory board member for District 7.

District 7 covers the counties of Burleigh, Emmons, Grant, Kidder, McLean, Mercer, Morton, Oliver, Sheridan and Sioux.

He replaces Frank Kartch, who resigned after 10 years. Board members serve a maximum of two four-year terms allowed under state law.

Nehring, a Bowbells native, is one of the owners of Habitat Unlimited in Bismarck, a company that specializes in custom agriculture planting strategies geared toward enhancing wildlife habitat on private land.

He said Gary Melby, a former advisory board member and family friend from his hometown, inspired him to seek a spot on the board.
