The greatest threat to the well being of any creature comes from other creatures of the same species. The closer they crowd together, the greater the risk of disease. Disease can be passed directly from human to human, from animal to animal, or through indirect carriers such as contaminated surfaces, feed or water, vermin, insects or other creatures.
Biosecurity, in other words excluding disease organisms from the creature’s environment, is the most effective form of protection, especially those farmed using modern production techniques.
DuPont Animal Health Solutions provides world leading biosecurity products and solutions developed specifically for disease prevention and control in livestock production facilities; farms, fish farms and storage facilities.
