A description of biosecurity practices among selected dairy farms across Australia

Talk Overview
Farm biosecurity refers to all measures geared towards the prevention of disease occurrences in farm animals. The study assessed important biosecurity aspects and motivations for implementing "best practice biosecurity practices".The biosecurity practices on dairy farms were variable and unstandardised in support of our initial hypothesis. The study showed that animal and human health reasons were the main motivators for implementing and maintaining “best practice” biosecurity measures among Australian dairy herds. There is a need to improve and standardise farm biosecurity practices among Australian dairy herds because of the potential risks that could occur in the event of a contagious disease outbreak as well as a need to increase awareness of preventive veterinary medicine practice within the farms.
