Cross-Border Livestock Health: Session III

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Backgrounder: The CBLHC is developing the concept of an emergency response scenario driven discussion, where conference participants could engage in an open dialogue on what would likely unfold in the event of a livestock emergency event, who would be involved, possible impact across a multitude of stakeholders, and overview of the steps necessary to recover from such an event. A successful outcome to the exercise would be a growth in understanding and awareness of North America’s prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery from an animal health event.

Who Should Attend: To ensure a wholesome and relevant discussion around the steps that would likely unfold in the event of a livestock emergency event, there needs to be a collection of industry and government experts along with a diverse group of stakeholders participating. This would include:
  • State and provincial veterinarians, including CVO’s
  • Federal representation from livestock emergency response divisions of USDA and CFIA
  • Cross species industry organization representation
  • Livestock producers
  • Retail representation
  • Media representation
  • Consumer representation

Emergency response scenario
  • an open dialogue on what would likely unfold in a livestock emergency event; who would be involved, possible impact across a multitude of stakeholders, and overview of the steps necessary to recover from such an event
  • Emerging disease/ diseases of concern by species and coordinated cross border response and secure food supply plans
  • US and Canadian participants- cross sector of value chain discuss all perspectives
  • CFIA and USDA develop ‘disease zoning’ agreements that minimize trade disruptions between US and CAN, as well as with other major trading partners
  • CFIA, USDA, and Industry continue priority national EM preparedness planning
  • Increase cross border USDA-CFIA collaboration re disease reporting by establishing/sharing reportable disease lists through secure platforms
