Steps to Move
During an FMD outbreak, Regulatory Officials may impose movement restrictions on animals and animal products, like milk. Moving animals, and possibly milk, will require a movement permit. Regulatory Officials may require each of the steps below are met before issuing a movement permit. Additional steps may be required in an actual outbreak.
- Request a National Premises Identification Number (PIN) from the office of your State Animal Health Official.
- Ensure milk truck and driver biosecurity performance standards are being met.
- Implement your enhanced operation-specific biosecurity plan.
- Monitor for FMD.
- Keep movement records of animals, people, milk trucks, equipment, and other items.
