The Saskatchewan minister of Agriculture says he will follow up on recommendations from the provincial auditor to prevent the spread of livestock diseases.
The auditor wants improved record-keeping of cases of livestock diseases and more documentation on the follow-up.
But as Agriculture minister Lyle Stewart points out, the auditor says his ministry is doing a good job of preventing and controlling the spread of livestock diseases.
“She suggests we need to consistently summarize key information for each positive case,” Stewart said. “And document support for decisions we make on these diseases and the spread of them – better than we have. And we agree with these recommendations.”

Stewart also says the agriculture ministry is working to follow a suggestion to have a unified system of regulating all slaughter plants in Saskatchewan.
