Adding the livestock (cattle) sector

On-farm biosecurity and stocking decisions affect damages

Results

Cost-effective to target cattle sector for risk-reduction

Direct cattle risk controls vs. non-selective deer-related controls

Cattle sector is not highly profitable

Reduce risk of transmission to livestock to zero

Fully invest in biosecurity or permanently remove all cattle from infected region

Deer are managed independently

Deer are highly valued whereas cattle sector is not valuable

Only damages are to hunters; can support greater prevalence in deer

Only have cattle sector if profitability exceeds investment cost
