Biosecurity is key to the future health and prosperity of our individual farms and our animal industries. By addressing some key areas on your farm, you can greatly minimize the risk of exposing your animals to diseases, pests and predators. By minimizing your risks, you wil also be reducing the spread of disease to another farm – a win for you, and for the industry as a whole.
This site provides an overview of biosecurity principles, as well as:
- standard operating protocols to help implement an effective program on your farm
- forms to help you document your program
- a Virtual Farm to demonstrate an effective program in words, pictures and videos
If you need further information on developing and implementing a practical, effective biosecure program on your farm, please contact us OR visit the Biosecurity Nova Scotia Blog
