BE SAFE: THE CWD THREAT IS REAL

Meat from deer contaminated with chronic wasting disease may be more dangerous to humans than originally thought. In the summer 2017 report by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency regarding the ongoing CWD study of 18 macaque monkeys, three of five that were fed infected white tail deer meat developed CWD over a three-year period. Two monkeys that had infected matter exposed to their brains also developed CWD.

CWD (Chronic Wasting Disease)  has already been detected in deer and elk in 23 states: Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, Montana, Wisconsin, New Mexico, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Illinois, Utah, New York, West Virginia, Kansas, Michigan, Virginia, Missouri, North Dakota, Maryland, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Texas; as well as the Canadian Provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Don’t take chances. Every hunter should make it a priority to have a SAWCorp blood test kit in their pack.

BE CONFIDENT: ENJOY YOUR HUNT

SAWCorp, Sustainable Agriculture & Wildlife Corporation, has introduced the first blood test for CWD which is able to detect CWD before a deer or elk starts showing symptoms (which can take up to two years or more to manifest). With our Field Collection Kit simply swab a blood sample from your deer or elk harvest, mail the blood sample to our lab (National Agricultural Genome Typing Center, NAGC) in the pre-paid envelope, and you have your results within seven to ten business days. Each kit contains all you need to collect and send samples for a single harvested deer.
