Biosecure entry education trailer
The keys to the Danish entry system are:
A biosecure entrance to the farm
The entrance area has separate clean and dirty areas (line of separation)
Upon entry in the “dirty” area:
People remove their outer clothing and footwear
Wash and disinfect hands
Move to a clean area where clean protective clothing, such as boots and coveralls, are provided (boots should be put on before coveralls).
People complete the protocol in reverse when exiting the building.
A line of separation (LOS) is a working line that divides a dirty space from a clean, bird-occupied space. Thus, a LOS is key to no-shower biosecure entries.
Using the biosecure entry education trailer
You can create a LOS a few different ways using either a two-zone or three-zone approach. The biosecure entry education trailer (BEET) simulates these two types of Danish entries. Watch these videos for more information on two-zone and three-zone Danish entries.
BEET serves to educate and train people on how they can enhance poultry barn biosecurity. Using the trailer, people can assess and practice their biosecurity plans for entry into poultry barns. BEET’s primary purpose and audience includes:
Managers responsible for making biosecurity plans. They can use to trailer to practice their plans for entry into poultry barns based on Danish entry concepts.
Employees expected to carry out biosecurity plans. They can use the trailer to practice company plans and deal with unusual situations that may come up.
The educational program supports multiple ways to carry out enhanced biosecurity plans. Owners and managers need to decide which practices fit their management need. Employees need training to know how to properly carry out Danish entry plans.
The BEET trailer is mobile and available for training purposes on-site, statewide.
