Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) is a major disease of livestock especially in cattle and buffaloes in India and causes huge economic loss to livestock owners due to a reduction in milk yield. The study indicated that, the number of households reporting an FMD incidence in their village was more in Non-CP district like Nellore (35 per cent) followed by other areas. Similarly, the FMD-CP districts numbers of households reporting an outbreak in the year 2008 were less as compared to FMD-Non CP districts. Likewise, the death rates were also very low in CP districts in comparison to non-CP districts, which were18.2 percent and 10.00 percent in CP districts, while it was 21.43 per cent and 22.13 per cent in non-CP districts, obviously indicating the efficacy of control programme. Further, the study revealed that the major reason for not vaccinating their livestock, especially bovines, against FMD was due to then milk production might fall. This was attributing the primary reason in all the districts; next non availability of regular vaccination services was the major reason. There as on too expensive was reported prominently in FMD non-CP areas, as the farmers had to go for vaccination by privately. Other reasons, for non-compliance of vaccination against FMD included don’t know FMD and too expensive to transport the animals to veterinary hospitals were only to limited number of farmers.
