Biosecurity is the planned, methodical approach to securing facilities as safe and disease-free environments. The term ‘biosecurity’ is used to encompass the wide range of measures relating to isolation, structural interventions, sanitation and day-to-day procedures; which collectively reduce the potential for introduction and transmission of disease agents. All personnel are responsible for the security of the farm and the health of the turkeys.

In order to ensure understanding and implementation on all of the above mentioned items, protocols, or formal guidelines, should be established and communicated to all stakeholders. Below you will find some useful information and resources to build your own protocols.
