International Desk: Keeping diseases out of your farm takes a lot of effort, which includes a farm bio security plan to maintain the health of animals and prevent contamination that could lead to diseases.
Farm bio-security is a set of measures to protect a property—be it a farm, hatchery, slaughter house, or other animal housing—from the introduction and spread of pests and diseases. The purpose of bio-security is to reduce the risk of diseases and kill microbial populations that pose a threat to the health of animals.
A bio-security plan aims to reduce, limit, and prevent the transmission of disease-causing microorganisms within the farm and from one farm to another farm. In extension, it can also improve the health of the flock, reduce the risk of profit loss, and increase profitability.
As part of its programme to provide farmers solutions to improve farm hygiene practices, Zagro offers Ultraxide™disinfectant that has an excellent broad-spectrum activity against bacteria, fungi, mycoplasma, and viruses.
