Prevention Practices For Rift Valley Fever (RvF)

By 

Abstract

If a case of Rift Valley Fever (RVF) is confirmed anywhere in the United States, mosquitoes could spread it across the nation. If any animal on your farm is confirmed to have RVF, all animals on the farm that could get sick (cattle, sheep and goats) may be euthanized and disposed of to control the further spread of disease. There are steps you can take to help reduce the risk of RVF from entering your herd. Strict biosecurity practices can help you and your neighbors minimize the chances that your animals will have to be destroyed. A General Precautions handout (found on the CFSPH website) provides prevention steps that should always be used on a farm. The biosecurity practices outlined here should be put into place immediately if RVF is confirmed anywhere in the U.S
