About the webinar
Biosecurity on farm is often very much focused on bio-exclusion; reducing the risk of disease entering the farm from external sources by concentrating on things such as the maintenance of boundaries, visitor and vehicle management and quarantine procedures for purchased stock. However, it is important to remember that even within a farm there are different groups of animals potentially with different susceptibility or previous exposure to disease so putting in place control measures to prevent disease spread between these groups can really help minimise disease challenges on farm. This webinar will provide practical tips on simple procedures you can put in place to protect your calves and minimise the risk of infectious disease.
After you have made your booking, you will receive a confirmation email detailing all of the webinar information.
