Not sure what farm biosecurity is?

Farm biosecurity is a set of measures designed to protect a property from the entry and spread of pests and diseases.

​​​These measures can include footbaths and footwear exchanges, vehicle washes, farm zones, limiting access, putting up fences, limiting vehicle and soil movement, and managing feral animals.

Biosecurity is everyone’s responsibility.
