    What is the best biosecurity measure to avoid infection by pathogenic microorganisms through wild animals in farms where animals have access to the outdoors?

    Clara Marin

    It is tough to control outdoors with physical or chemical measures of the pathogens transmitted through wild animals.

    How to prevent a wild bird from flying over our layers? however, if we can use an exhaustive vaccination protocol during breeding, immunizing our animals well, so that when they come into contact with the outside, they will be immunologically well prepared and do not suffer from any immunosuppressive disease that can facilitate infection and spread of other pathogens.


    Do you have experience of nets ?
    In some countries, poultry are obliged to stay in the buildings in dangerous periods when there are avian influenza outbreaks around.

    No, I have no experience in the use of nets.

    Indeed, when there are outbreaks, as we are experiencing right now, confining the animals is the least bad option to avoid contagion.
