This paper analyzes policy implications arising from the National Brucellosis Technical Commission Study. A systems simulation model was designed to estimate physical losses resulting from alternative bovine brucellosis programs. Changes in benefits, costs, level of infection and net benefits were calculated by program alternatives for determining economic and epidemiologic implications. Results indicate all alternative programs considered yield positive net benefits and reduce the prevalence of the disease. The results imply a need for further research to determine a program that is both epidemiologically and economically optimal.
