Gonzales says that a restricted zone in parts of Roosevelt and Curry counties would not have to be expanded if the infected cattle are within that zone, but the restricted area could grow if the disease is found outside of it.

And he says it’s possible all cattle in the state would have to be tested—which could cost the state $4 million to $5 million.

Animals within the restricted zone cannot be moved without an inspection.
