Emergency Response Procedures for Non-Disease Related Emergencies
An emergency or disaster can place a tremendous strain on producers, animals, and the food supply chain. Outside of a foreign animal disease outbreak, livestock operations may experience damage and disruption from seasonal events and natural disasters.
While these challenges are difficult to predict, advance preparation can help safeguard the welfare of those involved, ensure business continuity, and encourage a speedy recovery after the unexpected event has passed.
This document has been developed to provide additional emergency guidance for producers and animal caregivers.
