US - Protecting poultry flocks from microorganism contamination is an extremely important component of commercial poultry production environment.

The introduction of a highly pathogenic, contagious disease organism into poultry flocks could result in serious economic consequences for producers.

The effectiveness of a biosecurity program can be optimized by regional participation.

While any level of biosecurity is helpful, if all poultry producers in a given area utilize best management programs, the program as a whole will be more effective.

Practicing sound biosecurity procedures every day as part of a best management program will help reduce the possibility of contracting a disease and will reduce the spread of disease should an outbreak occur.
