Webinar Biosecurity for Pastured Pork Farms

June 18, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


Establishing biosecurity protocols on your farm helps keep animals healthy by preventing the spread of disease-causing pathogens—even in the muddiest of pastures!

During this webinar, we’ll show you how to create a customized and effective biosecurity system on your pastured pork farm. We’ll start by defining a key concept of biosecurity: creating lines of separation. Lines of separation, or commonly referred to as the “clean/dirty line,” are the most effective way to manage pathogen transfer onto your farm and to your animals. We’ll also share examples of how to examine your farm for the best locations to establish lines of separation to prevent and minimize contamination.
