The project will produce a series of training DVDs / videos that present the biosecurity requirements and appropriate risk minimisation measures relevant to all sectors of the commercial meat chicken industry. The videos produced will include processing plant induction / training, general biosecurity, hatchery biosecurity and feedmill biosecurity. An exhibition bird biosecurity information / training video will also be produced that is suitable for the noncommercial sector and will primarily target the exhibition poultry and live poultry sales groups. These groups represent the greatest risk of any of the noncommercial sectors, due to their practice of bringing birds together in the one place and returning live birds from such venues to existing flocks. This DVD would also be suitable for other noncommercial poultry groups. The main emphasis of the videos is that there are two primary objectives of biosecurity – one being the minimisation of risks of avian disease, the other for control of food borne pathogens. Although many of the biosecurity practices relevant for each of these objectives are shared, the emphasis and approaches taken may be quite different.
