Beef Producers

Thanks for stopping by to learn more about the Secure Beef Supply (SBS) Plan and how you can voluntarily participate! 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 SBS Plan for Continuity of Business provides steps to prepare and request a movement permit. Use the resources on the MENU to start preparing.
