Thanks for stopping by to learn more about the Secure Sheep and Wool Supply (SSWS) Plan and how you can voluntarily start preparing today! If foot and mouth disease (FMD) is found in United States livestock, Regulatory Officials will limit movement of animals and animal products to try and control the spread of this very contagious animal disease. FMD is not a public health or food safety concern. Meat is safe to eat.
The SSWS Plan for Continuity of Business provides steps to prepare and request a movement permit. Use the resources on this website to start preparing.
