Abstract: A few reflections are made on the future strategies and approaches for combating infectious diseases of livestock, keeping into consideration public concern on food quality and availability. The policy of eradication of pathogens/diseases instead of vaccination has rendered livestock naive to certain pathogens and as a consequence susceptible to epidemic outbreaks, even more so as we have to conclude that outside attack is quite often difficult to control. Therefore, immunoprophylactic measures in livestock remain top priority and will in the future focus more on the induction of mucosal immunity and the activation of innate immunity.
