Creating a Farm Specific Biosecurity Plan

Optimizing health on the farm is the responsibility of all and communication is the key. The new National Farm- Level Biosecurity standard is full of useful information to help you create a biosecurity plan specific to your farm.

Your plan will help protect the health of your horses by examining the details of how you can minimize risks of disease transmission. It should include the training of staff, expectations from service providers, visitors and boarders. Your plan should also address access, traffic control, separating new arrivals, pasture management, disinfection routines and more.
