The Principles of Biosecurity

“Biosecurity is a set of management practices which when followed correctly reduce the potential for the introduction and spread of disease causing organisms onto, and between farms.”

Three Key Levels of Biosecurity

  1. Conceptual Biosecurity This involves site planning and particularly the Location e.g. proximity to other farms, transport, etc. It is almost impossible to change once committed without very high cost
  2. Structural Biosecurity
  3. Operational Biosecurity


Structured cleaning and disinfection programs are an essential part of an effective biosecurity program. Effective monitoring and attention to detail are essential to achieve the best results. For more detailed advice on your particular circumstances, please contact us.
