Bio security

Protecting the herd against infections

External protection
The location and design of the pig unit must ensure that risk of infection
transferred from outside is reduced to a minimum:
  • Long distance to other pig farms
  • Cleaning facilities for vehicles
  • Fenced and guarded pig unit
  • One access point only for staff and visitors
  • No movement of pigs outside
  • Controlled and safe delivery of live and dead pigs
Internal protection
The interior part of the pig unit is designed for limiting transfer ofpathogens between pigs within the herd:
  • All in all out sections for all growing animals
  • Washing facilities for cleaning of sows
  • Pressure washing and disinfection of each compartment
