  • Biosecurity Guides for Animal Agriculture

    Location:

    Description:

    Biosecurity can be defined as those practices designed to prevent the introduction of a harmful agent into a defined setting. In livestock operations, this means preventing harmful agents such as viruses, bacteria, parasites or toxins from coming in contact with livestock. The American Feed Industry Association’s Guide to Biosecurity Awareness says animals and feed ingredients may become adulterated by the following
    means:

    • Biological (bacteria, toxins, viruses, parasites, etc.).
    • Chemical (classical chemical warfare agents and toxic industrial chemicals such as pesticides — including rodenticides, and heavy metals).
    • Radiological (agents that can be delivered in liquid or solid form).
    • Physical (metals, glass and plastic).

    The guidelines in these biosecurity guides can be used to help protect your livestock from dangerous substances.
