I would rather be considered one who 'overreacted' than one with no livestock. I think your plan is good Islander, My prayers are with ya!

How is your herd Islander? Is everyone all right? Every time I heard a new case has been found, I think of you hoping it won’t cross our border.

I am truly gratified to feel the support and caring from everyone that has posted responses regarding this frightening disease. I guess I never realized that people really do care what happens to us "farmers" and "ranchers". It means a great deal to us to feel we are not facing this dreaded disease alone. We have calves arriving tonight and all next week and I cannot imagine how heartbreaking it would be to have a Government Agent arrive to destroy them. I pray they get this disease completely under control so that we can all get on with happier times and enjoy this beautiful Spring. Thank you again to all of you who passed along your kind thoughts and prayers. It does make things easier.

I understand So. America is beginning to vacinate their animals against F/M. Why has the rest of the world resisted vacination?

The vaccine produces the same symptoms of the disease as the disease itself, but allows the animal to develop antibodies. This would lead to confusion in detecting the disease. Also, the foot and mouth virus can mutate, rendering the vaccine useless.
