OIE recognize areas of Brazil as free from foot and mouth disease without vaccination

Brazil, the world's largest beef exporter, achieves recognition one more time for its sanitary quality. The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) recognized the states of Paraná, Rio Grande do Sul, Acre, Rondônia and the regions of Amazonas and Mato Grosso as foot and mouth disease free areas without vaccination. None of the OIE members opposed the Brazilian request and, with 129 favorable votes and one abstention, these areas were approved on Thursday, the 27th.
The removal of the vaccine benefits export and the opening of new markets for Brazilian meat. Japan and South Korea, for example, only export bovine protein from areas where there is no vaccination.
“Brazilian producers know the importance of such status and, for this reason, they have worked hard to achieve it. Our slaughterhouses also work complying with strict sanitary measures and thus guarantees excellent quality meat for our international customers. Every year, Brazil breaks down new barriers and conquers different and more demanding markets,” says Fabio Leone, bovine protein manager at KITGarra.
