Disease Outbreak
and Biosecurity Introduction


This section will provide information on how to protect yourself and your farming operation in the event of potential animal disease outbreak. It is designed to assist in creating a plan for dealing with diseased animals on farm.


It should be noted that not one single process or solution will work for every producer on all farms. Each farm operation should consider what options will work on individual sites and even for individual barns. Barn layout, acreage, animal size and numbers will impact on-farm euthanasia and disposal decisions. The scope of the emergency and broader poultry industry decisions will affect what choices are available regarding marketing and disposal of animals.
