The earliest state involvement in the systematic control of animal diseases dates to 1919 (Chapter 325) with the creation
of the Dept. of Agriculture, Division of Animal Industry, Livestock Disease Control Service. In 1934 this office was supplanted
by the Livestock Sanitary Service. The Bureau of Animal Health was created in 1962.
