The most often overlooked and forgotten biosecurity measures on the farm - whilst it is probably the fastest, simplest and cheapest to achieve in preventing the spread of bacteria - are to disinfect footwear and sanitise hands with anti-bactericidal hand soap.

They require little effort and really should become automatic for farmers and workers because recent studies have again clearly proven that farm boots samples are an important risk factor with a Salmonella prevalence of 19.7 per cent (Prev. Vet Med., 2011).

If disinfectant baths are adequately used and maintained, and located at strategic places, they are a good additional measure for the biosecurity of the farm. Additionally, the presence of foot baths draws the attention of staff and visitors to the importance of biosecurity on the farm (Amass et al., 2000; Pritchard, 2003).
