    Relief in Brazil after recovering free of FMD with vaccination OIE status

    Brazil’s access to many top-tier markets had remained limited by concerns over the introduction of the contagious FMD disease in cloven-hoofed ruminants.

    The World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) declared Brazil free of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) with vaccination on Thursday, opening new export prospects for the world’s largest beef exporter. The OIE already considered most of Brazil to be free of foot-and-mouth with vaccination. The declaration, which the government had been expecting since the start of the year, extends certification to the whole country.
