How Far Can Bugs Travel?

Project Overview
We all know what good on-farm biosecurity programs are about:

1. washing your hands

2. wearing barn specific clothes

3. keeping good records

But how good are we at preventing contamination by practicing biosecurity?

To assess the effectiveness of on-farm biosecurity practices GloGerm™ was used to simulate disease spread & contamination at the Arkell Poultry Research Station in Guelph Ontario. This allowed us to observe how well project volunteers were able to contain the “spread of disease”.
