The FarmBiosecurity app is for people on the go who want to bolster biosecurity on their farm.
It’s based on the six biosecurity essentials, covering every aspect of your day-to-day activities.
To make your biosecurity plan, simply select the actions that apply to you from the suggestions, or type in your own actions. Your selections become a to-do list that you can share with others. You can attach photos as reminders or to let others know what needs to be done.
If you have multiple properties or sites, that’s not a problem. You can add as many as you like.
Using the FarmBiosecurity app, you can take your own biosecurity action list with you wherever you go.
And if you do spot anything unusual while you are out and about, the hotline numbers for both crop and livestock producers are at hand.
Select the ‘Start your FarmBiosecurity Plan here’ text on the Welcome screen to create a property profile name.
Create your property profile name. Remember you can set up profiles for multiple properties or areas of your property.
Once you have created your property, press the ‘6 Essentials’ button to start developing your biosecurity plan.
Choose from the various categories within each of the 6 Essentials. When in a category, first look at the risks, then review the recommended actions, then select from the suggested actions and add them to your plan.
Once you have selected the actions you wish to save, go back to the home screen by tapping the house icon in the top left corner. Once you are back at the home screen, select ‘FarmBiosecurity Plan’ to view your plan.
When you are on the ‘FarmBiosecurity Plan’ page, you can view, delete or add to your actions list by pressing the ‘+’ symbol next to your plan or email the plan to yourself or somebody else by pressing the ‘Email my actions list’ button.
