______ maintains a list of High Consequence Livestock Pathogens which are reportable and considred to be high economic concern (most are viruses) USDA
What are 4 Ways the US agriculture is vulnerable to FAD? 1.Extensive movements of animals 2. Animals raised in very large groups 3. High number of animals can predispoze to dz 4. Products intermingle at many levels (farm->fork) 5. Difficulty with security on farms and stores
What are 4 Potential routes of FAD introduction? 1. Agroterrorism 2. Accidental (tourism and imported animals) 3. Migration of wildlife 4. Natural occurrence of dz

What are the indicator spp of FMD? Cattle, lesions develop early and symptoms are severe
How is the FMDV transmitted? saliva, feces, urine, milk and respiratory aerosols; vesicles also have high titers (inhalation, ingetion, direct contact, fomites and airborne are all methods of transmission)
How long can the FMDV survive in feces, hay, bran and snow covered soil more than 100 days!
T/F recovered or vaccinated animals can become carriers with FMDV remaining in pharyngeal areas? True!
which spp can become carriers of FMD Cattle-for 2 years, Sheep for 9mo, Pigs do not become carriers
T/F FMD can survive pasteurization temperatures and be transmitted in milk and also survives indefinitly in refrigerated meat byproducts True
T/F FMD can survive in frozen BM or LN True
Pathogenesis of FMD: inhale/ingest virus->replication in pharyngeal epi->spread to LN->replication and dissemination to epithelial sites->vesicle formation on mouth, snout, feet and teets
Virus can be excreted for ___ hours prior to development of clinical symptoms 24 hours (can spread before the dz is recognized)
