Ontario Goat, Ontario goat producers, and the Canadian Animal Health Coalition collaborated to develop this essential handbook to guide producers in preparing for and responding to a widespread disease outbreak.
Serious animal disease outbreaks are recognized as the industry’s greatest vulnerability because they have the potential to impact the goat industry and the livestock sector as a whole. These types of emergencies can negatively affect consumer preferences and industry practices and can restrict Canada’s trade and export capacity. While emergencies are nearly impossible to predict, there are things you can do to minimize the impact. This handbook has been developed to help producers plan, prepare, and respond to disease-related events that create a sector-wide emergency. We all have a role to play in protecting and strengthening our industry.
