Securing the Homefront for Poultry Flocks
How many times have you heard about biosecurity? Too many to count? Yet, how often are biosecurity practices implemented on your farm and to what extent is it a priority? Talk to anyone who has had a bad disease outbreak on their farm due to outside factors and the issue of biosecurity becomes one of top priority.
By definition, biosecurity is a defensive health management plan to keep poultry flocks free from disease. Every aspect of a biosecurity program is prevention-based. It is a planned prevention approach that includes measures relating to management and hygiene which collectively reduce the potential for disease introduction within the flock.
