Implementation of a comprehensive biosecurity programme

Implementing a comprehensive biosecurity programme is crucial for safeguarding animal health and preventing disease spread in pig farms. Personalised biosafety protocols, tailored to each farm’s needs, require solid technical advice. These measures aim to prevent the entry and dissemination of pathogenic microorganisms, ensuring the welfare of both animals and workers. With the rise of multi-resistant pathogens and threats such as African swine fever, biosecurity has become indispensable in pork production. Identifying critical control points is essential, and effective solutions include controlling entry routes, ensuring water quality, regular cleaning and disinfection, managing disease vectors, and proper facility sanitation. Ensure your supplier offers a range of biosecurity solutions and personalised protocols to support animal health and performance on different livestock farms.
