Biosecurity Control of ³Management Diseases´ Calf Pneumonia  Calf Scours  High cost to the industry worldwide  Mortality  Poor growth  Poor Feed conversion  Cost of Medication  .

Biosecurity Requirements of the Dairy Farm  Maintenance of stock health  Protecting the production potential  Protecting the quality of the product .

Maintain Standards in all areas Cubicles  Calving Facilities  Calf rearing  Collection Area  Milking Parlour  Dairy  .

TYPES OF DISINFECTION   Terminal Continuous .

STAGE 1 REMOVAL & DRY CLEAN      Remove stock Equipment Bedding Gross organic waste Dust .

STAGE 2 CLEANING & SANITIZATION     Reducing infective material Removal of dried on matter Use a Detergent / Sanitizer Allow to dry afterwards .

STAGE 3A WATER SYSTEMS  Drainable ± Drain ± Clean ± Disinfect ± Flush  Non-Drainable ± Clean ± Sanitize .
