The officials say the area must have no positive tuberculosis tests on dairy and beef cattle for about two years before the zone will be eliminated.

Producers in the zone must test their animals for TB before shipping them outside the zone, which includes Roosevelt County and a small part of Curry County.

State veterinarian Dave Fly says the last positive test in the zone was two years ago.
