Biosecurity minimizes the introduction of disease onto farms, limits the spread of disease already on farms, and reduces the risk of disease being carried between farms. Biosecurity controls transmission of disease-causing agents between animals, from animals to feed and from animals to equipment that may directly or indirectly contact other animals.
