Biosecurity on Dairy Farms

webinar banner 0422

When people mention biosecurity, they almost always use the poultry and pig farms as the ideal model. Those systems work well for an enclosed piggery or poultry house, but it is impractical for a 200-hectare open grazing dairy farm.

Dairy farms will be used as an example of how to apply biosecurity since, as cattle farms, they already practice biosecurity to a much higher level than they suspect.

It is merely a case of ensuring that these simple measures are applied and that they are applied correctly.

The focus of this webinar will be on the 3 legs of biosecurity namely:

  • How do you prevent diseases from entering your farm?
  • How do you prevent diseases from spreading on your farm?
  • How do you prevent diseases from spreading from your farm to others?
