Unit 4: Farm health planning and biosecurity

The creation of health programmes for all classes of livestock is now a major part of welfare codes and farm assurance schemes.

They include the identification of specific problems on farms, the formation of protocols in dealing with disease and target setting.

Good biosecurity underpins all health planning on farms.

At the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Explain how a health plan is formulated
  • Describe a common health plan for dairy cattle and sheep
  • Evaluate the importance of biosecurity on farms
