Above we see a graphic of typical routes of transmission of a Transboundary Animal Disease.
Okay, ﬁnally, now we get to do some study and homework on DISEASES!
Transboundary Animal Diseases are deﬁned as those diseases that can easily move from one area to another and create serious
animal health or economic impacts.
In the US, we used to refer to these as Foreign Animal Diseases (or FADs), which probably only reﬂects our ethnocentrism! Now we refer to them as Transboundary Animal Diseases, or TADs.
A narrated PowerPoint explaining some of the key transboundary diseases of ruminants can be found BELOW....

It's published by the US Animal Health Association. Note that here is a chapter for each of the transboundary diseases.

This publication has very useful descriptions and photos of important diseases of livestock. You can link in here...
Make a 5 minute lesson (WITHOUT PowerPoint) to communicate key concepts of one of these Transboundary Animal Diseases to a group of farmers.
