Abstract [en]

Biosecurity is important for a healthy livestock production; it may be defined as the prevention of disease causing agents entering or leaving any place where livestock including poultry are present. A number of biosecurity measures are available to minimize the risk of introducing and of spreading diseases of which some are zoonotic; i.e. diseases transmissible between animals and humans.

This report provides information on biosecurity measures safeguarding animal health and animal welfare and it highlights topics such as barriers and motivation to  biosecurity, training and education, value of partnership and economy.

Broadly speaking biosecurity describes the process and objective of managing biological risks associated with food and feed production in agriculture and fisheries.
