FOREIGN ANIMAL DISEASE AWARENESS:
This foreign animal disease alert is for exhibitors at Pennsylvania fairs. As a result of heightened awareness of security in the United States, foreign animal disease (FAD) surveillance is being increased nationwide. We encourage each of you to be particularly aware of any indication that could signal the occurrence of a highly contagious disease or any other unusual or unexplained adverse animal health event. No potential cases of foreign animal disease should be ignored.

Potential hoaxes should be treated as real threats until proven otherwise. Special attention should be directed at farms and other areas where there are large number of livestock and poultry.

Be particularly alert to these five signs:
  1. Sudden, unexplained death loss in the heard or flock
  2. Severe illness affecting a high percentage of the animals
  3. Blistering around an animal's mouth, nose, teats or hooves
  4. Unusual ticks or maggots
  5. Staggering, falling or central nervous system disorders.
If you see something unusual, alert the Fair Superintendent at fair office.
