The Basics of Biosecurity


Just like it takes time to improve genetics, finish weights, and milk or egg production, it takes a while to see results from a biosecurity program. Over time, animal health and productivity improvements can offset the cost of biosecurity implementation.

Biosecurity is like insurance – your investment pays off when a disease outbreak occurs. However, you don’t have to wait for disease to strike.

Start now!

  • Think about the diseases that worry you. Identify them and find out how they spread.
  • Then, improve animal health by implementing biosecurity that works for you.
