Abstract


Planned use of biosecurity measures is crucial in protecting the health of pigs andproduction success. The required level of biosecurity in pig farms should be the result of logicalthinking and timely taken action, as well as recognition of the specific threats and weak points in theproduction process. The introduction of HACCP principles and sanitation protocols in the farmmanagement can prevent the introduction and spread infections agents in the herd. The aim of ourstudy was to evaluate certain biosecurity measures in a pig farm: farm isolation, quarantine foranimals, heard health status control, relation of personnel to animals and equipment, between-farmsand on-farm traffic control, food safety, manure management, removal of dead animals, and otheranimals, bird and rodent control). Our recommendation is that regular control of biosecurity levelshould become a routine in pig farms of industrial type.
