“I think the best thing we can do on-farm, in case we get AI, is to be prepared. What better thing can you do than to have a Contingency Plan drawn up by professionals who know all the ins and outs of what’s going to happen on your farm, what the regulations are, how it’s all going to unfold on your farm? So you need professionals who can guide you in that.”

James Baxter, Egg Farmer, Scotland

Before their business was hit by AI, Herb Fed worked with industry specialists, Livetec Systems on planning. 

Edward [farmer] said: “Livetec had been working with us behind the scenes for three or four years, helping us with our biosecurity.”

It meant that when the worst happened they already had a plan in place to tackle AI. Their biosecurity plan was so good that, following the culling of birds, it was found that AI had been restricted to the original two broiler sheds.

“There’s so much pressure on farmers. We’re working with Livetec because if you’ve got good biosecurity, it’s going to protect your business in the long run. It’s worth putting that money into it and investing.”

Josh Watson, Egg Farmer, Bedford
