Foot and mouth disease

Foot-and-mouth disease

Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a contagious viral disease that can spread very rapidly of cloven-hoofed animals. Among these are domestic animals such as cattle, water buffalo, sheep, goats and pigs, as well as antelope, bison and other wild bovids, including deer. Wageningen Bioveterinary Research conducts research on this disease.
