Disease Response Package
If one of the above listed foreign animal diseases is ever diagnosed in the United States, it will be essential to get prevention information into the hands of producers and allied industries as soon as possible. This “response package” contains a brief disease overview with a table of contents for the document, the Fast Fact, disease specific prevention practices and checklist. It can be rapidly emailed as one file so producers can begin increasing their disease risk management procedures on farm immediately to help minimize the chances of their animals becoming infected.
