Posted on: 2015-11-28
  • Monitor animal health carefully, do not let people come into contact with sick animals.
  • Keep animals under the care of a veterinarian and Keep animal vaccinations up to date.
  • Avoid overcrowding of animals, stressed animals are more likely to spread disease to other animals and humans.
  • House animals to prevent their exposure to wild animals i.e. foxes, rats etc.
  • Calves and other young ruminants, young poultry are not a good choice for interaction with people at higher risk of illness (the very young, the very old,
  • pregnant women, and people with compromised immune systems).
Public health and safety with farm animals

Ruminants Include:

  1. Cattle, sheep, goats, buffalo, deer, elk, giraffes and camels.
  2. These animals all have a digestive system that is uniquely different from our own.
  3. The primary difference between ruminants and simple-stomach animals (called monogastrics), such as people, dogs, and pigs is the presence of a four-compartment stomach.
  4. The four parts are the rumen, reticulum, omasum, and abomasum.
