During an FMD outbreak, movement permits will be issued by Regulatory Officials based on the risk posed by that item. Moving milk from dairies in a Control Area is not without risk of disease spread to livestock via the truck, driver, and milk transfer hose.
Regulatory Officials will determine and communicate the exact permit requirements for milk (if required) and cattle, semen, and embryos (required). Producers should be prepared to meet the requirements prior to requesting a permit.
General permit guidance is included below, in the SMS Plan and a 2-page draft permitting guidance document for Milk Producers which is the result of the pro-active risk assessment for the movement of raw milk.
