The Oregon Cattleman’s Association cites two factors for its support of Senate Bill 57 in the Oregon Legislature. 

First, it accepts the analysis of the state veterinarian that we are in a low threat level for infection, yet he goes on to predict that within 10 to 20 years brucellosis will once again be reintroduced in Oregon due to infected elk migrating out of the Yellowstone area. He also states that vaccinations only mask the disease and do not prevent it. This comment makes absolutely no sense to me.
