Secure Beef Supply Survey

KDA Survey to Advance Secure Beef Supply Planning

Secure Food Supply planning is a national effort to provide guidance to livestock producers for preparation for a foreign animal disease outbreak.  The Secure Beef Supply Plan (SBS) encourages beef producers to voluntarily prepare for an outbreak, such as Foot and Mouth Disease, to better position themselves to limit exposure of their animals through enhanced biosecurity and, surveillance, to be able to move animals with no evidence of disease thereby maintaining animal production and commerce during an outbreak.  As part of SBS plans producers and their veterinarians develop premises-specific written biosecurity plans for use in an outbreak.

In an effort to develop and provide outreach guidance for Kentucky specific SBS plan, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture seeks your participation in an online survey of current beef farm/ranch management and biosecurity practices.  The survey is anonymous.  We encourage your input.

The survey is available at and will be available for your participation until June 30th.

We look forward to your participation.
