Higher-risk properties on the border with Paraguay to be monitored

Farms considered most at risk, particularly those in areas on either side of the border with Paraguay, are to be monitored more frequently by technicians from the official services in Brazil and Paraguay. The Head of the Department of Animal Health (DSA) at the Ministry of Agriculture (Mapa), Guilherme Marques, explains that the first step will be to harmonize the concept and define common criteria for risk classification between the two countries' technicians. From then on, the goal will be make these farms known so that they are monitored closely, especially during vaccination periods.

Brazil and Paraguay have signed a cooperative action plan to strengthen animal sanitation in the border region and prevent further outbreaks of FMD. It has been agreed to continue joint supervision of vaccination against FMD on farms previously identified by both countries’ veterinary units, with priority going to the properties most at risk.
