Framework for Interstate and Intrastate Movement Decisions During a FMD Outbreak in the U.S.

The Framework for Interstate and Intrastate Movement Decisions During a Foot and Mouth Disease Outbreak in the U.S. is the result of a two-year effort to build consensus and develop criteria for making animal movement decisions in the event of a Foot and Mouth Disease outbreak in the U.S. The document focuses on interstate and intrastate movement decisions by State Animal Health Officials; however, the recommendations may also be useful for movement decisions by producers and packers.
