Failure to take necessary steps or procedures in taking care of young growing animals could lead to effects on productivity. The direct effects of animal diseases on livestock productivity include reduced feed intake, changes in digestion and metabolism, increased morbidity and mortality and decreased rates of reproduction, weight gain and milk production.

Animals must be provided water, food, proper handling, health care, and an environment appropriate to their care and use, with thoughtful consideration for their species-typical biology and behaviour. Animals should be cared for in ways that minimize fear, pain, stress, and suffering. Animal diseases pose a risk to public health and cause damage to businesses and the economy. Farmers should therefore take every precaution to prevent these diseases, such as keeping animal housing clean and vaccinating livestock is inherent.
