Livestock Cleaners & Disinfectants
Preventative biosecurity has become increasingly more important in livestock agriculture in the aftermath of recent disease outbreaks. Implementation of farm biosecurity excludes pathogenic organisms from the farm environment and serves to safeguard livestock and the human food supply.
Routine farm hygiene practices essential in controlling infectious disease within the farm include regular cleaning and disinfection of animal housing, hard surfaces, vehicles and equipment.
Good farm hygiene practices combined with an informed selection of cleaners and disinfectants used to control the transmission of pathogens affords an economical and powerful preventative tool in infectious disease management. The costs associated with implementing strict biosecurity measures and reducing pathogen loads in animal housing areas are of low cost compared to veterinary costs and the losses associated with culling.
An informed selection of a high-level disinfectant independently tested for efficacy against common pathogenic viruses, bacteria, fungi and spores is critical in breaking the cycle of infection. The use of high-level broad-spectrum disinfectants within a biosecurity programme is critical to eliminate disease causing pathogens in farms and prevent re-infection of animals.
The stability and efficacy of livestock disinfectants should be tested under a wide range of farming conditions such as high levels of organic contamination, hard water conditions and winter temperatures, all important considerations when choosing a farm disinfectant. Neogen’s extensive range of broad spectrum disinfectants are independently tested to offer the highest level of protection against infectious diseases without risk to users and animals.
Management of manure and litter with limited vehicle and personnel traffic between buildings, foot and wheel dip facilities, regular waterline disinfection, and pest control all help prevent the horizontal transmission of pathogens. Hand sanitisation and management of open wounds are also important in safeguarding livestock health. Aerial fogging has been found to be useful in controlling the rapid spread of respiratory diseases in livestock via aerial transmission.
