Simply no. They do happen to be both RNA genome (positive strand) viruses 
basically within the overall classification group picornaviridae. But the 
cattle one hoof-and-mouth disease (or as we in the U.K. callit 
foot-and-mouth diseae) is a totally different disease.
The hand foot and mouth disease is restricted to humans.
