Veterinarians have a tremendous opportunity— and responsibility — to help their clients prepare for a potential foot and mouth disease (FMD) outbreak. In a FMD outbreak, dairy operations, infected or not, will be subject to movement restrictions. Producers should be prepared to manage potential disruptions in animal and product movement, including milk.

The Secure Milk Supply (SMS) Plan, funded by USDA, was established to help producers, and their veterinarians, prepare for and ultimately survive an FMD outbreak.

The voluntary SMS Plan gives veterinarians the tools they need to help their clients implement key business continuity strategies. Herd veterinarians are a critical resource in educating on-farm biosecurity managers, helping them to determine their Line of Separation, or “LOS”, to keep disease off the operation, and developing whole-farm enhanced biosecurity plans based on the known exposure routes for FMD. To learn more about this important responsibility, and the opportunities available to assist your clients with business continuity planning, attend the training hosted by WVMA and DATCP on June 15.

*Attendees are asked to bring an aerial map of a dairy farm with them.
