BioSecurity Wash Systems
Bird Flu is back in the US – are you taking steps to protect your farm?
Viruses such as HPAI and swine fever have the ability to devastate the industry, regardless of whether a facility is directly impacted by positive cases.
In a report from the USDA, it was shown that “disease events can impact related industries even if the disease has no direct effect.” This places a soaring demand on implementing superior protection measures. We depend on transportation vehicles and need them to be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected against what could be an extremely expensive loss.
Transportation fleets that don’t follow a stringent cleaning process could play a direct role in furthering outbreaks, leading to trade restrictions and loss of income across all facilities. Proper biosecurity systems in place help prevent the spread of disease and shorten the length of time disease is spread.
With the return of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), it’s more important than ever to increase your biosecurity practices through fleet washing.
We work hand in hand with you to make sure all your biosecurity needs are met. Drop us a line to see how we can help protect your business from avian influenza and other pathogens.
On Feb. 14, a flock of about 240,000 chickens owned by Tyson Foods Inc. in Kentucky tested positive for a highly lethal form of bird flu — the H5N1 strain. This is part of a widening outbreak that threatens the entire U.S. poultry industry.
Back in 2015, millions of chickens were killed as a bird flu outbreak ravaged the industry. Farmers needed to ensure everyone, including fleets that delivered birds and feed, were thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before entering. Now, as The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) confirms several positive H5N1 cases in wild birds, and some commercial and backyard flocks, in multiple states including New York, Indiana, and Virginia, there is increasing pressure to deliver a higher standard of care when it comes to fleet washing. Here’s what you need to know.
Increase the protection for your farm and fleet and reduce the threat of transmissible diseases
Here’s how you can reduce the threat of transmissible diseases including highly pathogenic avian influzena (bird flu), swine flu, and other biosecurity issues.
Our fleet biosecurity system will thoroughly clean the undercarriage, wheels, chassis, tractor and trailer of the vehicles and then thoroughly apply a sanitizer to the sides and undercarriage of the vehicle. A typical wash costs approximately $5.00 -$7.00 and a sanitary wash costs less than $2.00. Our sanitizer is registered and has been used in our automated agricultural wash systems for years.
All parts of the truck are covered with sanitizer including the undercarriage and rear.
