Good Biosecurity on Farms
Ontario Poultry Industry Biosecurity
Practises On-Farm Cards
OMAFRA Factsheet on Biosecurity for
Small Flock Owners
We all know what good on-farm biosecurity programs are about:
- washing your hands
- wearing barn specific clothes
- 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”.
