The state of Mato Grosso do Sul is part of the Midwest region, its strategic position, its borders and its borders with many states are characteristics that require the State to pay special attention to the introduction, dissemination and maintenance of emergency diseases. The state, in addition to climate, vegetation and hydrography has a rich wildlife, mainly in the Pantanal region. The municipality of Corumbá is the first municipality in cattle herd. In this region the cattle production system is almost exclusively extensive with the use of native pasture. This combination: the breeding of commercial herd and proximity to the various wild species and susceptible to foot-and-mouth disease was the object of study, at a time when the State did not share the status of "free area". Studies conducted in the State, brazil, occasionally or experimentally, show that despite species susceptible to free living, the siids affected by the disease do not become carriers. The only species reported as carrier of foot-and-mouth disease is the African buffalo and does not exist in the country. Despite the need to develop other work with susceptible wild species, the effective control and eradication of foot-and-mouth disease began with the awareness of producers, emergency training given to the Official Service, vaccination campaign establishments, surveillance of properties, surveillance of events, surveillance in slaughter establishments and effective traffic control.
