Farm biosecurity measures

Efficiency of different on-farm biosecurity measures


Contact person: Karin Kuster

Duration:  2011 -  2013


This project aims to assess the effectiveness and the importance of various on-farm biosecurity measures. For selected diseases, a risk assessment will be performed in order to evaluate the probability of disease introduction under different combinations of biosecurity measures. These results will be used to elaborate recommendations for biosecurity measures that can be implemented under Swiss housing and management conditions.
