4. Training Tools for Best Management Practices for Farm Biosecurity for Pig Production

4.1 Incoming Pigs, Semen and Embryos

+ 4.1.1 Supplier Health Status

+ 4.1.4 Quarantine or Isolation Facilities Locate quarantine/isolation facilities (barn or room) on the site that presents the least risk of contamination. Use a written animal introduction protocol for all tasks including the entry process, biosecurity, feeding, monitoring and testing. Use appropriate serological and other tests on isolated animals to determine their status.

+ 4.1.5 Disease Response Plan Develop a disease response plan with your veterinarian in case a disease is suspected.  An example of an emergency planning document would include disease response. The disease response plan should consider under what circumstances the producer would contact their farm veterinarian or the CFIA, as well as implement stricter biosecurity practices.

+ 4.1.6 Unidirectional Pig Movement based on health status Within a production system, move incoming pigs from lower health risk to higher health risk sites.
