Best Biosafety Practices: Feed Transshipment in the Demarcation Zone. Experience of "Ukraine" Ltd.


One of the best biosecurity practices on pig farms is to not allow any vehicles on the farm. Instead, feed and other inputs should be loaded in a demarcation zone — a designated area between the outer and inner perimeters of the farm with controlled access.  

This video demonstrates the demarcation principle of feed transshipment. The experience was shared by LLC "Ukraine" (Chernihiv region).

The training videos were prepared within the framework of the project "Animals Health in Ukraine", implemented by the Association Ukrainian Pig Breeders with the support of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The Association of Ukrainian Pig Breeders is a non-profit, voluntary organization founded by Ukrainian pork producers. The main purposes of the association are representation and protection of rights and interests of farms of the association, assistance in development and introduction of new technologies for efficient production of pork, expansion of sales markets, and protection of domestic sales market.
