Ready for a Stop Movement Order?
If you have been around any of the Nebraska Cattlemen Animal Health and Nutrition Committee meetings over the past several years, you will have heard the push for producers to have plans for emergencies and, in particular, a plan for a disease outbreak. Secure Beef Supply plans are those emergency contingency plans. These plans are biosecurity plans on steroids that would allow for continuity of business in the event of a major disease outbreak such as foot and mouth disease (FMD).
These plans would allow authorities to be assured you protected your cattle from the possibility of infection (social distancing) and would enable you to be one of the first businesses to continue to move cattle with authorization from the state veterinarian.
