SwineCast 1041, The Squeal - On Creating A Biosecurity Culture

SwineCast 1041 Show Notes:
  • In this episode of The Squeal, a team of experts addresses a topic of greatest concern to the collective industry mind, biosecurity. Sharing hands on techniques and implementation ideas are Dr. Joel Nerem (Pipestone Veterinary Services), Dr. Andrea Pitkin (PIC Health Assurance Veterinary Team), and Dr. Jess Wadell (PIC Health Assurance Veterinary Team).
  • Biosecurity - It's something that just doesn't happen from 8:00 to 5:00, it has to be 24/7. It has to be on the weekends, it has to be on the holidays. It just has to be part of what people do every day, and it's often not convenient. The things that this episode talks about are going to prevent disease and are not convenient. That's why it has to be culture. It has to be just ingrained.
