You are welcome Anne Christine. Probably the less implemented practices are the proper use of the farm and of the house hygiene lock, but to convince the farmer to implement them is really not easy. If they have never tryed AI (or any other severe disease) they are in trouble to understand what is correct to do and why. Of course we always try to explain them the reasons for which they must follow certain rules, but sometimes, if they don’t touch directly the problem they don’t really understand that some measures are effective. This point is also part of the control of the movements of the visitors and of course the strict restriction to access the farm for any kind of visitors is very important.
