DuPont Animal Health Solutions provides world leading biosecurity products and solutions developed specifically for disease prevention and control in livestock production facilities.

Poultry Production Biosecurity

Biosecurity, in other words excluding disease causing organisms from the creature’s environment, is the most effective form of protection.  From viruses or bacteria, coccidia or fungi, disease may spread via recognised vectors of infection, from the animals themselves, the people who handle them, contaminated food and water, housing and equipment, and even the air itself.  Viruses causing Chicken Anaemia or Gumboro are not only extremely persistent in the environment, but are also immunosuppressive, thus increasing susceptibility to additional pathogen attack.  Modern biosecurity techniques are a key element in disease control, providing a healthier environment for your livestock.

An Overview of Biosecurity in Poultry Production

Biosecurity is a set of management practices which reduce the potential for the introduction and spread of disease-causing organisms onto and between sites.

Hazard Analysis, Critical Control Points (HACCP)

HACCP strategies identify the areas where pathogens may enter the system, ways to eliminate them and the methods to show that the chain of production is being continually and consistently audited.

Terminal Biosecurity Programme

The terminal biosecurity programme helps to prevent the “carry-over” of pathogenic organisms, thus ensuring that each new crop gets a completely clean, fresh start.

Standard Continuous Biosecurity Programme Procedures

The aim of the standard continuous biosecurity programme is firstly to prevent pathogens from establishing themselves on site, and secondly, to prevent the spread of infection within the farm site.
