Failure to prevent the spread of animal diseases could cost Canada’s livestock industry billions of dollars. Unchecked spread of animal diseases also has the potential to put human health at risk since more than 75% of emerging infectious diseases in humans originate from animals. To protect human health and ensure the viability of the livestock sector in Manitoba, the Chief Veterinary Office of Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development (MAFRD) developed a GIS-based decision support system that provides a common operational picture during animal health events.
