Iowa’s state veterinarian says biosecurity at commercial poultry facilities is no easy task.
Dr. Jeff Kaisand tells Brownfield it’s essential to keep highly pathogenic avian influenza out of flocks. “Biosecurity is something that has to be in place every day and every hour of the day. It’s extra work. That’s what is sometimes difficult is to make sure it happens all the time.”
He says there are multiple steps to enforce adequate measures that eliminate contact with wild bird populations.
