Group Description

LIST IS CLOSED AND POSTS SAVED FOR FURTHER REFERENCE. NOT ACCEPTING NEW MEMBERS ~ DONT ASK



Biosecurity is defined as procedures that are executed to keep new diseases from entering a farm. There are two basic concepts that affect the safety of pigs in breeding or sanctuary

1) Proactive measures which keep new diseases from being introduced and
2) Reactive measures to take should a disease or suspected disease appears at a facility.

All breeding and sanctuary farms should have a national identification number.

All-in/All-out definition:

1. Note all-in/all-out is not just about animals; it includes water and feed utensils, all manure and bedding removed from the walls and floor, cleaning of the air and ventilation system and finally, but not least, management of any medicines, needles and syringes used during the isolation program.
2. When a pig that leaves the farm and comes back starts at step one again.
3. If a new pig is introduced to a quarantine group, the process starts over.

Cleaning protocols:

The key to proper cleaning and disinfection is to first remove all visible manure from the room and equipment. Hot water and detergent make this job easier. Disinfection should only occur after all visible manure has been removed. Manure and urine can interfere with the effectiveness of disinfection. The hardness of the water can also affect how well a disinfectant works and different diseases may require different disinfectants.
