Plan and Prepare for a Livestock Disease Emergency

Secure Food Supply New England

Foreign animal disease (FAD) outbreaks have the potential to cause devastating impacts for farms and farm economies across the globe. In the United States, Secure Food Supply Plans were developed to protect animal health, food systems, public health, the environment and the economy from the introduction and spread of FADs. Prevention and emergency response planning efforts are the result of collaborations with state, federal, university, veterinarian and agricultural industry stakeholders.
