Avian influenza prevention measures


A biosecurity plan should contain a list of critical protocols that must be adhered to at all times, and referred to regularly so you can be sure that the measures you have in place are functioning effectively.

Some core points that should be in your biosecurity checklist are:

  • Knowing what, and where, animals are moving around your premises and their origins if new to your flock, including a period of quarantine, were necessary
  • Ensuring that farm equipment, delivery and transport vehicles, feed and bedding, which has been shared with another farm, are thoroughly disinfected before allowed entry
  • Keeping track of workers from other farms and your workers movements around the premise
  • Limiting the visits from people with pets and their personal vehicles
  • Preventing your livestock from drinking from contaminated ponds, rivers and streams
  • Training for all workers on the protocols that are in place and what symptoms to watch out for
  • Maintaining your sheds and storage buildings so they are secured against wildlife, vermin and wild bird
