Biosecurity on the Farm

Biosecurity in the chicken farming sector refers to all measures aimed at limiting the introduction and spread of diseases, such as Infectious Bursal Disease and avian influenza, and microbial contamination, such as Salmonella, E. Coli and Campylobacter. Such measures include water sanitation, rodent control, footbaths, control of visitors, and much more.

The Biosecurity Manual for Contract Chicken Growers is the guide for chicken farmers regarding biosecurity.  The main elements are also described in the Biosecurity Factsheet and the Biosecurity Poster reiterates the same messages.  These documents are relatively large in size to be downloaded, particularly the fact sheet and the poster.

For further information on farm biosecurity, you may want to check out the farm biosecurity website set up by Animal Health Australia, of which ACMF is a member. To do so, click on the button below:
