Infection control and disease prevention between animals or to people requires awareness of how exposure happens, biosecurity steps to stop spread, using disinfectants appropriately, and communicating through signs ways to protect themselves.
Disease causing agents can be spread from animal-to-animal and between animals and humans through a variety of transmission routes.
Farm biosecurity is important to keep animals healthy. Small steps can prevent diseases in livestock, poultry and people.
Disinfection, when done correctly, can reduce disease-causing organisms and is an important part of any biosecurity plan.
