In Shahrasti upzilla, during study 30 animals were affected with FMD, out of which 18 were vaccinated. Morbidity rate was 74%, and mortality rate was high in calves about 9.1%. The economic loss was calculated taking into consideration milk loss, losses due to abortion, death and treatment charges. The total economic loss of farmer due to FMD outbreak was higher loss of milk production and it was about 84.29% of the total loss. The study revealed that BCR on the basis of full cost before FMD were found in 1.41, and after FMD outbreak the BCR was 0.70, which shows that the farming is more profitable when the herd is free from FMD outbreak.
