Under the new global health regime all animals are considered to be exposed to exotic, novel, and foreign diseases as food trade is demanded by the global profiteers from once sovereign nations.Â Just last month numerous new and reemerging diseases popped up around the globe.Â The global profiteers make no bones that they are in it to take money after all it really isn’t about making your food safe. Â This will be a series on the new VS Vision 2015 for America’s food supply.Â Read it and weep. You will find that our milk supply is being commandeered by power hungry and money-sucking parasites for a disease which they acknowledge is NOT EVEN A PUBLIC HEALTH CONCERN!Â One might imagine what they have in store for real disease concerns.
In their own words:
The Secure Milk Supply (SMS) Plan is currently under development. In the event foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is diagnosed in the United States, an animal health emergency will be declared and livestock and allied industries will feel the immediate impacts of animal quarantines, increased testing, and product movement restrictions. The just-in-time supply practices of milk movement in the U.S. could result in significant interruptions of milk and milk products to consumers, as well as create significant milk disposal and animal welfare issues on dairies. A well-developed, science and risk-based plan requires the input of industry, state and federal animal health officials.
Goals of SMS:
- Avoid interruptions in raw milk movement from dairy farms (with no evidence of infection) in a FMD Control Area to commercial processing;
- Provide a continuous supply of wholesome milk and milk products to consumers; and
- Maintain business continuity for dairy producers, haulers, and processors through response planning.
You need to understand that the new VS Vision 2015 is performance based rather than our traditional ConstitutionalÂ prescriptive process, technique, or procedure.Â New rules will apply and they will be made from an unelected agency who has no business making our public policy.Â Instead this pool of profiteers will be swayed by international interests.
Foot and Mouth & Public Health
- Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a highly contagious viral disease of cattle and other cloven-hooved animals such as pigs, sheep, and goats.
- Movement restrictions are designed to contain the disease and minimize virus spread to animals.
- FMD is not a public health concern.
- FMD should not be confused with â€˜hand, foot, and mouth diseaseâ€™ which is caused by a completely different virus and only affects humans.

SMS Plan Components
Rule # 1:Â Biosecurity
The SMS Partners, in coordination with the Biosecurity Working Group Members, have drafted documents for dairy premises, milk haulers, and processing plants that describe recommended biosecurity performance standards to implement in support of rapid permitting for raw milk movement in the event of a foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) outbreak in the United States. Compliance with these performance standards is intended to reduce the chance of spreading FMD and increase the chance of timely permitting of raw milk movement from uninfected dairy premises to processing.Â Since all premises will eventually be registered into the ‘System’ to achieve compliance you must obey all biosecurity performance ‘standards‘.
Rule #2:Â Movement plans
The SMS Partners, in coordination with the Milk Movement Working Group Members, have drafted recommendations related to pre-event planning and coordination that could occur on a state level to support rapid permitting for raw milk movement. Brief descriptions of some of those recommendations are provided here:
- Milk processors should provide evidence their processing procedures meet the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) Terrestrial Animal Health Code requirements for inactivating FMD virus in milk and milk products
- Milk products originating from an FMD control area not treated to OIE standards should be recalled
- Milk treated to OIE standards for either human or animal consumption may enter commerce
Recognizing milk movement recommendations may be affected by the scope of a foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) outbreak in the United States, a document titled; “Guidelines for Classification of Phases and Types of an FMD Outbreak and Response” was drafted. Concepts from this document have been incorporated into an APHIS document, presented to the National Assembly of State Animal Health Officials, and are garnering support.
In Rule #2 Movement Plan shifts the burden of responsibility and costs to farmers.Â Farmers must provide evidence that they have followed the OIE Terrestrial Animal Health Code for inactivating what is more than likely a weaponized FMD virus that was either accidentally or intentionally released.Â Farmers are considered guilty until they prover themselves innocent contrary to our founding documents.Â This rule also establishes that the false notion that regulatory permitting of raw milk somehow makes the raw milk safe.Â Even a babe can see that the only dairies that can survive such a climate will be those with deep pockets, namely multi-national agri-dairies.
Rule #3-Risk assessment
A proactive Risk-Assessment for the transport of milk from an infected, but undetected dairy is being developed to support the SMS collaboration (for those unfamiliar with agriculture collaborators are paid government contractors, wink-wink the Dairy Federation). The proactive risk assessment will identify areas of risk that could result in the further spread of FMD virus during the transport of raw milk from the dairy farm to the processing plant and will also evaluate proposed mitigations. University of Minnesota staff located at the USDA-APHIS-VS Centers for Epidemiology and Animal Health is performing the proactive risk assessment for the transport of raw milk as one part of the Secure Milk Supply plan.
In this brilliant rule they claim they do not have a risk assessment plan yet, but what the hey, it is time to get you on board anyhow.Â Nevertheless the assessment sounds pricy, time consuming, and it introduces the FDA’s PMO, Pasteurized Milk Ordinance.Â Now thisÂ PMO is scary.
This rule pits the farmer against the CEAH which “explores and analyzes animal health and related agricultural issues to facilitate informed decision-making in government and industry. CEAH also partners with the World Organization of Animal Health (OIE) and its member countries to improve international disease surveillance capabilities and analytic methods supporting trade decisions. CEAH has a multidisciplinary staff that includes agricultural economists, spatial analysts, GIS and computer specialists, veterinary epidemiologists, technical writers/editors, and data managers.”Â Got that?Â The hobbyist dairyman/woman might well come toe-to-toe against multidisciplinary staff with unlimited and unaccountable powers.

The SMS-Secure Milk Supply is only the first step in our journey of exposing the dangers behind the veil of VS 2015.Â There is no doubt that we will revisit some old challenges that we have experienced and a new disturbing direction set before us.Â We will have battles that we must engage if we are to continue to have access to our historically safe food supply.
