Biosecurity is a series of management practices designed to prevent, minimize and control:

  • the introduction of pests and diseases into a production area or farm;
  • the spread of pests and diseases within a production area or farm; and
  • the movement of pests and diseases off the production area or farm.

 

A Farm-Level Biosecurity Plan is a written code of uniquely designed practices to prevent, minimize, control and contain pest and disease movement onto, spread within, and off a farm or production area.
