Natural Disaster Response
Like every sector of the economy, natural disasters like hurricanes, tornados, and wildfires can cause tremendous damage to agricultural infrastructure and result in the death of thousands of animals. Failure to effectively manage animal carcasses following these disasters can result in significant economic, environmental, and public health impacts.
Agroterrorism is the deliberate use of biological agents (e.g., bacteria, viruses, toxins) against agricultural commodities, such as livestock or crops. The result
can include economic damage, loss of confidence in the food supply and
possible loss of life.
