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.

  1. Request a National Premises Identification Number (PIN) from the office of your State Animal Health Official.
  2. Ensure milk truck and driver biosecurity performance standards are being met.
  3. Implement your enhanced operation-specific biosecurity plan.
  4. Monitor for FMD.
  5. Keep movement records of animals, people, milk trucks, equipment, and other items.

Several of these can be done PRIOR to an outbreak. Explore the LEFT MENU to start preparing today!
