Biosecurity is a program used to safeguard poultry from the introduction and spread of infectious agents. It is about keeping what is inside the barn in, and what is outside the barn out. Biosecurity is a multi-faceted health plan that includes isolation, traffic control (vectors and fomites), hygiene, mortality and manure management in addition to cleaning, disinfection and water sanitation.
