The state of Mato Grosso do Sul - MS, has one of the largest cattle herds in the country, and the state is known nationally for the quality of bovine genetics, because the productive system is highly technical, where it seeks the precocity and high quality of pastures provided to animals. Because it is an organized productive sector, it has the longing to have its bovine herd free of foot-and-mouth disease without vaccination, which is already occurring in several states of the federation. However, a long way is already being traveled in order for this dream to come true for the entire beef chain of the state. In view of this situation, the objective of this study is to conduct a study on the sanitary measures adopted, with the objective of removing the vaccine against aphthous from the cattle herd of the state of Mato Grosso do Sul and possible impacts. For this, the State Agency for Animal and Plant Sanitary Defense - IAGRO has not measured efforts with its entire technical team to achieve this goal. With this, it has enhanced its actions in traffic control, in the technical training of its employees, in health education activities, successes in the coverage of all its vaccination campaigns against foot-and-mouth disease and in the results of serological surveys, restructuring of the defense service, as well as animal health legislation and active surveillance for the early detection of foot-and-mouth disease virus infection. In addition, it is worth mentioning that IAGRO has been available to comply with all the determinations established by the Ministry of Livestock Agriculture and Supply - MAPA, so that the status of an area free of foot-and-mouth disease without vaccination can be implemented in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, which validates the work of this agency before MAPA and meet the demand of the productive sector of the state that yearlike this election.
