In 2020, farmers and ranchers generated nearly $199 billion in output by raising cattle, pigs, chickens, and other animals. The U.S. food supply is among the safest in the world; industry, government, and other stakeholders collaborate to monitor, address, prevent foodborne illnesses, and protect the health of food-producing animals. Advanced vaccines, medicines, and diagnostic tools identify, prevent, cure, and even eradicate disease in food animals, which in turn protects humans from diseases spread through contaminated food.
