Controlling infectious disease is essential for farmers looking to have healthy profitable livestock. For too long, the emphasis has been placed on testing for infection and then attempting to control disease after it has taken hold – but there is another way!
The risk of disease entering or spreading through a herd can be assessed and traffic-light scored using disease-specific questionnaires. Combined with recent surveillance results, the future prevalence of disease may also be predicted.
…. and Prevent
Once you have identified where the key risks lie, you can put in place bespoke control and testing strategies, right down to tasks that will be carried out on the farm on a day-to-day basis. The program contains a unique robustness checker to assess the adequacy of selected tasks in meeting the desired control strategy.
