Biosecurity Tips

MINIMIZING BIOSECURITY RISKS

 

As we see reports of the highly pathogenic H5N1 we have tips for decreasing your biosecurity risk on your farm.

  • Have dedicated non-porous boots for your barn.
  • If visiting a different farm wear booties or disinfect boots before going back into your barn.
  • Have dedicated clothing (coveralls) for the barn.
  • Don’t wear your barn clothes or boots off your farm.
  • Personal hygiene – Wear gloves and wash hands after being in your barn.
  • Limit contact with feces.
  • Dedicate storage containers and equipment for feed and feces.
  • Dedicate a drop off area for deliveries.
  • Transportation vehicles should be clean, disinfected and if traveling between farms.
  • Proper storage and disposal of used consumable items.
  • Observing self-quarantine if highly contagious diseases are suspected.
  • Contact your veterinarian if you suspect an illness.
