A foot and mouth disease lesion on the tongue of a cow. This disease is one of the most highly infectious livestock diseases. It can infect 'cloven-hooved' animals - in New Zealand this would include cows, sheep, pigs, horses and llama. New Zealand remains free of foot and mouth disease, but an outbreak here would cause significant losses for agriculture.
