Can you explain what you mean by a USB stick with FreeBSD on it. Do you mean a FreeBSD installer or do you mean a Live FreeBSD version ?

If you want a FreeBSD install download a memstick.img version from here.

If you want a Live FreeBSD version download a image from here.

After downloading dump the image to your USB stick with the dd command:

dd if=~/freebsd-memstick.img of=/dev/usb bs=1M

usb can be also /dev/sdb or /dev/sdc... Check first which drive letter your USB stick will have, otherwise you can delete a wrong drive.
