Interesting! I called the Idaho department of Agriculture today, and they still had not recieved word yet on when it would be available. I am hoping to cross into Utah for an event the end of April. The Idaho representative was somewhat positive we might be able to get it before then.From Twin City Poultry: ATTENTION ANTIGEN CUSTOMERS: We have been told by the manufacturer that they are hoping to be approved by the USDA sometime the end of April?.
However, I also talked to the Utah deprartment of Agriculture today. I was told that there are small quantities of it available (they have some, too bad I'm in Idaho). What happened is the manufacturer of it quit, and the new supplier has not yet been approved for their antigen. I'm sure it takes time to do that as well as a lot of testing. The field veterinarian for the Utah Department of Agriculture told me he was informed that by mid-summer the new supplier's antigen should be approved and ready to go! I sure like the sounds of April better, so let's cross our fingers for that date.
