In animal production, good animal health and high yields can only be delivered by maintaining the highest standards of hygiene. Farms are ideal breeding grounds for disease causing microorganisms and pests and by correctly using biosecurity protocols the farm can be controlled to minimise infection and disease. The financial costs of disease, mortalities and poor performance far outweighs the cost of implementing an effective cleaning and disinfection program.
