Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is one of Australia’s greatest biosecurity risks. An outbreak of FMD would severely impact Australia's access to livestock and livestock product export markets.
Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a serious and highly contagious animal disease that affects all cloven-hoofed animals including cattle, sheep, goats, camelids, deer and pigs. Cloven-hoofed animals are those with divided hooves. It does not affect horses or zebras.
FMD is a disease of animals, not humans and is a different disease than Hand, foot, and mouth disease which is common in young children. FMD is not transmitted to humans by eating affected meat. +
