Biosecurity is a word frequently used in the poultry industry worldwide but it seems that it is one of those technical terms which has not been well-received. Is biosecurity simply implementing visitor control and farm cleaning? In reality, a solid biosecurity program goes far beyond these.

Biosecurity is a word frequently used in the poultry industry worldwide but it seems that it is one of those technical terms which has not been well-received. Is biosecurity simply implementing visitor control and farm cleaning? In reality, a solid biosecurity program goes far beyond these.

There are so many publications on biosecurity which are available to the industry and I am sure that you have, at least, a couple of them on your desk in your workstation. Many workshops/seminars have been organized over the past 10-15 years to discuss different aspects of a comprehensive biosecurity program. The main objective of all these efforts has been to emphasize how important biosecurity is.

Here are a few questions which we can discuss in this blog :

1. Where are we now compared to a decade ago?
2.  Do you personally believe in biosecurity?
3.  How do you put words into action when it comes to biosecurity?
4.  Does your biosecurity program achieve what you think it does?
5.  If you believe in biosecurity, have you ever tried to encourage your
     colleagues in the industry to take biosecurity measures serious?
6. Why is it so difficult to convince people involved in the industry to pay
     attention to these rules?
