New Tools for Improving Biosecurity
Main sources of contamination that increase biosecurity risks were identified along with practices that may increase the risk of contamination. Packing plant loading docks and farms had the highest level of contamination with trucks increasing microbial transfer risk between areas. Transportation is the largest source of contamination in the farming system. Biosecurity needs to be improved in order to increase long-term sustainability and profitability in the swine industry.
