Contingency plan

Contingency planning is a crucial part of poultry farming. At Livetec we have developed contingency plans that cover every aspect of a farm business. Our plans predict potential scenarios, risks and emergencies that could arise in the future. 

Using this knowledge, we design strategies that help you to manage the impact of these risks and provide you with a clear roadmap of what to do, should you face any issues, including disease outbreaks and processing delays. Our contingency plans are also aligned with both the APHA disease outbreak measures and Defra’s disease protocols.

Having a biosecurity plan is absolutely essential for the running of a farm business. Without a plan in place, animals and businesses are left susceptible to the introduction of deadly pathogens. 

We use our years of knowledge and on-farm experience to curate a bespoke biosecurity plan that outlines and breaks down all of the measures that need to be followed by every single person on and off farm, to prevent the introduction of deadly pathogens.

Our biosecurity plans provide:

  • A full biosecurity overview to provide a line of protection
  • An outline of defined biosecurity protocol

Emergency response plan

An emergency response plan significantly enhances your preparedness for a potential disease outbreak.

When outbreaks occur, zones are put in place. If your premises is caught in a zone, you will be visited by APHA. If an outbreak is confirmed, there will be a significant number of people on your premises, including APHA who need a lot of information from you. A Livetec emergency response plan holds all of the critical information you will ever need to comply with APHAs requests, allowing you to be less stressed and make the process smoother.

Our Emergency Response Plan provides:

  • A complete business and location overview, in relation to biosecurity planning
  • Key contact listing and mapping of the surrounding area
  • Immediate action plan on suspicion of disease
  • An infected premises information form
  • Record of factual farm information
  • Facility planning for visitors
  • An infected premises map, showing animal health where to implement boundaries 
  • On-site storage and holding capacity planning
  • Waste water containment and disposal schedule, related to cleaning and disinfection
  • Templates for bird numbers and housing
  • A pest control plan
  • Depopulation outline of operations

Biosecurity services for insurance purposes

Contingency planning is a crucial part of poultry farming. In order to have the right level of cover on your farm, you must be able to tell insurers the biosecurity measures you have in place, and any plans you have that mitigate your risks of a disease outbreak. 

Your dedicated Livetec biosecurity advisor will conduct a telephone consultation to establish whether a desk-based risk assessment is required. This discussion will be informative and explorative to give us a full understanding of your current biosecurity measures and protocols.

Should an on-site risk assessment be required, our experts will use the findings from our visit to provide you with a detailed report, outlining any current biosecurity threats, highlighting any structural or operational biosecurity vulnerabilities. Additionally, we build bespoke biosecurity maps to outline control points, ancillary, and the rest of the farm area.

  • Standalone risk assessment; visit & documentation
  • Desk-based risk assessment; telephone consultation
