that sounds good and if all is said and done then farmers can make profit from the chickens because of low mortality as well as saved money.

Well highlighted key principles. However the practicality has not been fully established. What i have seen is the wholistic approach is applied more to breeders than broilers. In some countries its a question of cost benefit and producers are working on thin profit margins. What would you highlight as must dos even at commercial broiler level.

This article explains the concept of biosecurity brilliantly. All these points should be kept in mind before the farm construction and during the birds growing so, that we can get maximum from this enterprise. I am very thankful to author for reminding such useful information.

Dear Douglas

Thanks for comments. These are the basic points. How these can be applied will depend upon the situation, location and facilities. It is proven that bio-security measures are always beneficial for all kinds of poultry i.e. broiler, layers or breeders. The cost is always negligible as compared to total investment.

Best regards

You are exactly right. Before using various disinfectant we should know exactly their characteristics . You can see
all these details on internet. The disinfectant manufacturing companies also give details about their products.
All readers are requested to study these characters before selecting and using any disinfectants. This is very
important for proper bio security and and economics also.

Best wishes and regards

Dr,
The article is very useful in our poutry farms. I really appreciate it. Regarding the disinfectants, I think one needs to change them from time to time to prevent resistance. Am I right? In that case, how long should we use one disinfectant before changing it? And can we alternate two dissinfectants or more?

A very fine article, Dr.Munawar which I feel is based on real observations made by you. I like it that way. You have gone into micro details where Biosecurity principles are violated-eg. exposing washed uniforms to dust and contamination etc.... It is in these little ways that we invite problems. It all boils down to what I believe- that Bio security should start from the mind, governed by conviction. Many believe that Biosecurity is in using the latest gadets and sanitizers. If Bio security is not ingrained in our thinking and living, it will only be superficial and will not work. As you have so well said in one of your pointers, worker education, good example by technical staff and clear communication are very vital to support good Bio security. Thank you for the fine sharing. Leo Antony, Bangalore, India
