Summary: When reviewing the management practices on 24 farms throughout Canada it became apparent that overall producers are doing a fairly good job at implementing procedures regarding biosecurity within their operations. However, there were some potential areas of improvement, including: being relaxed when it came to a visitors audit (over 50% not up to date) and 1/3 of facilities did not have proper signage pertaining to biosecurity protocols.

Almost all of the facilities kept the supply of animals entering their facility from only one source, over 80% have adopted biosecurity measures for entering the premise (ie. taking a shower and changing) and all of the facilities ensured that staff were properly trained with regards to biosecurity.
