Safeguarding Utah's Livestock with a Serious Simulation

Aug 6, 2012

UPR's Kerry Bringhurst reports on last week's large-scale simulation of a foreign animal disease emergency.

The Utah Department of Agriculture and Food has been for months now organizing this exercise as a test course of sorts to prepare for and prevent the possible spread of a foreign disease that could impact the nation's food supply, threaten livestock production, and force what is a $300 billion national industry to stop exporting livestock overseas.
