Livestock protection and isolation

by: Andrzejek

Wed Mar 19, 2008 at 12:21:05 PM EDT

First off, this is my first post, so please forgive me if I'm not doing this right!

I live on a farm and so protecting my livestock to ensure continued food production during a pandemic is an important part of our plan. This is the place where our extended family group will most likely ride out the pandemic, so I'm trying to be certain to learn all I can.

When isolation is dicussed as a primary method of safety, there are few references to provide specific details. How isolated is isolated? How far does the airborne virus travel from its host?

I have seen references that include dogs and cats in the species that are susceptible to the current BF viruses, but I haven't seen any refences to farm livestock (other than birds, of course). Are there studies anywhere that address this?
