Abstract—The concern stems from the public health and food safety aspects of animal health, but also from the economic costs that animal disease outbreaks can trigger. Very recently it has been proposed a method () devoted to discover the farms that may have been infected by an outbreak of a highly infectious disease of livestock subjected to long trips with intermediary stops. Having a reliable list of farms that may be infected is relevant to feed existing farms culling strategies (e.g., ). The present paper reports on an effective way to implement the method introduced in  based on an emerging software technology.
