Livestock Disease Outbreaks
Animal Health & Livestock Outbreaks
The importance of planning is to minimise the impact of a livestock disease outbreak and to reduce the spread of the disease.
The effects of an outbreak could have serious impacts such as; movement restrictions and the culling of a large number of animals. There could also be human impacts resulting from potential zoonotic diseases.
Some emergencies might require you to plan how you would look after your pets, especially those where you might have to leave your home for a short time. Check out our advice on evacuating with animals!
