I agree that is may be seen as a “warning sign” for visitors. But as it is most likely ineffective (or a possible source of contamination) efforts should be targetted to changing boots ot using boot/shoe covers. the presence of poultry barn-specific boots (or boot covers) on the other side of the bench should also have this “warning sign” effect. I believe that the efforts for biosecurity (a person would have a limited “amount” of efforts dedicated to biosecurity) should be targetted on efficient practices.
Also, to increase the visitor sense of responsibility, a visitor log should be used in each barn.
