Beef Producers Should Have A Biosecurity Plan, Says OSU Veterinarian Dr. Rosslyn Biggs

Tue, 08 Sep 2020 07:41:33 CDT

Beef Producers Should Have A Biosecurity Plan, Says OSU Veterinarian Dr. Rosslyn Biggs Dr. Rosslyn Biggs, OSU beef cattle extension specialist and College of Veterinary Medicine director, wants producers to develop and implement a biosecurity plan for their herd.

Dr. Biggs is an expert on the secure beef supply plan and Radio Oklahoma Agriculture Network Associate Farm Director and Editor KC Sheperd recently interviewed Dr. Biggs about that plan.

The secure beef supply plan focuses on foot and mouth disease.

In Oklahoma we have Dr. Hall, state veterinarian and his team working on a biosecurity plan based on the current national plan with some Oklahoma specifics, Biggs said.

Biggs encouraged producers to start thinking about their own biosecurity plan.

I think as producers we need to start thinking about our own biosecurity plans, put those in writing and practice them, Biggs said.

Biggs said we havenít had foot and mouth disease since 1929 but if we were to have an outbreak today it would be devastating.

As we continue to have this discussion with cattle producers, now is the time to be prepared, she said.

The biosecurity plan should build upon what producers are already doing to keep disease from entering our herd, things like cleanliness and hygiene, Biggs said.

The plan should elevate the things producers are already doing with more strict levels of practice.

The OSU veterinarian said the first thing to do is put the plan in writing and visit with their veterinarian.
