Deer Farm Quarantined After Buck Tests Positive For CWD

For the past 20 years, Dirk and Jane Stolz have been raising deer on their farm located on Townline Road, just west of Kewaskum.
Now, after one of the family’s bucks tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), the farm has been quarantined.
“I will never be able to move another live animal off of this farm ever again.
If I can't move a live animal off the farm, then that means I can't sell anything. So basically our doors are shut. We are out of business,” Dirk said.
“It is pretty devastating. There have been a lot of sleepless nights for the last week because our entire business is pretty much gone,” he added.
This was the first case of CWD in Washington County.
