Mississippi Disease and Disaster Preparedness Program

Do your part to protect the health of Mississippi's livestock herds. It is very important that Mississippi goat and sheep owners move forward as an industry to safeguard the health of our livestock. The danger of a contagious disease outbreak among goats or sheep, whether by natural occurrence or terrorist attack, makes it imperative that the location of goats and sheep be readily available to animal health officials. Small ruminant livestock owner cooperation is essential for rapid disease response in the instance of a contagious disease outbreak. In the event of an animal health emergency, basic livestock owner information will be used to rapidly respond to the emergency to protect individual animals and Mississippi's livestock industries through the Mississippi Board of Animal Health.
