Home \ Pig Production \ Biosecurity

Biosecurity is the set of practical measures taken by pig businesses to limit the spread of infectious diseases, both within a farm and from one farm to another, or from elsewhere, eg the abattoir. Reducing the spread of disease will help to maintain the health of the unit, reduce the costs of disease and maintain productivity.

Ensuring good biosecurity throughout the entire supply chain is the first line of defence against exotic and emerging diseases such as African Swine Fever (ASF) and PEDv.
