To help producers take steps to reduce the risks posed by people, vehicles and equipment, Farm Biosecurity has produced two short videos which you can now view on our website.
The five-minute educational videos include practical advice and tips on how to reduce the biosecurity risk to your farm and feature interviews with real-life farmers about why biosecurity is important to them.
The videos provide visual demonstrations of key biosecurity practices related to people, vehicles and equipment, including signage, vehicle wash down facilities and visitor risk assessment.
