Biosecurity Resources: Videos

We’ve curated a number of other great videos for swine producers when it comes to understanding and implementing biosecurity on the farm.

African Swine Fever Prevention – European Food Safety Authority

  • Good animated short covering the important aspects of the disease and how to prevent its entry into the country and farm. It highlights the role that humans, wild animals, and pork can play in introducing the hardy virus into new areas

Biosecurity measures that are often neglected

  • All biosecurity principles and most measures are centuries old, yet we neglect key scientific information. This is true for simple issues like washing and disinfection, and for more complex problems. On-farm biosecurity is essential but insufficient. A regional perspective is required
  • Presented by Dr. Jean-Pierre Vaillancourt, University of Montreal

Farm and Food Care: Biosecurity on Canadian Swine Farms

  • A high-level overview of biosecurity on a swine farm, from the perspective of a producer

Progress in biosecurity and risk assessment of swine disease

  • Dr. Derald Holtkamp, associate professor, Veterinary Diagnostic and Production Animal Medicine, Iowa State University, Ames, described recent research on disinfectants and a bench entry system into sow farms, as well as risk assessment and outbreak investigation. As a result, lower incidences of PED and PRRS outbreaks recently indicate that the improvements are working. Iowa Swine Day provides relevant and timely information from recognized speakers in the pork industry. This annual event focuses on issues facing U.S. pork producers with specifically chosen topics and speakers each year

Biosecurity with Dr. Benny Mote, UNL Swine Specialist

  • Dr. Benny Mote is a swine extension specialist at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. He discusses the important control points to ensure high biosecurity for your herd

Dr. Peter Davies – What PEDv Taught Us About Biosecurity?

The Danish Entry Principle

  • This video reviews the Danish entry principle — a series of procedures necessary to reduce the introduction of infectious disease into the farm

Three-zone Danish Entry and Exit for Poultry Barns: University of Minnesota

  • Although focusing on poultry biosecurity, the principles are similar. This video does an excellent job of outlining the 3-zone Danish entry principles. As with the above video, oftentimes shower-in/shower-out is practiced to further ensure the risk of introduction and spread of pathogens is minimized

All-in-All-out Management: University of Minnesota
