Producers: Protect your animals from Foot and Mouth Disease

Whether you're a small-scale or large-scale producer, or even have animals on your property as pets, on-farm biosecurity is critical to prevent the introduction into Canada and the spread of foreign animal diseases like Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD).

Producers should make sure that visitors and workers on their farms follow strict biosecurity measures before coming onto their premises. People visiting your farm could be carrying FMD on their contaminated clothing, equipment or in their food if they were recently in a country that is infected with FMD.

Careful sourcing of animals, products and by-products, including feed and feed ingredients, is also important.

Refer to our disease fact sheet about FMD , Top Questions on FMD response and the links below to inform yourself about this animal disease.
