Both security and biosecurity procedures are important for minimizing the risk of intentional or unintentional introduction of pathogens to your farm. Most producers have implemented biosecurity programs. This guide is focused on farm security issues. The goal of this guide is to provide pork producers with an extensive checklist of security procedures that could be implemented at the farm level. This guide is designed and intended for internal use within a farm or production system. It would not be practical, nor is it recommended, for every farm to implement all of these procedures. Producers need to review their operation and determine which recommendations are appropriate for them. This checklist is intended to be a tool from which individual producers can select relevant security procedures to create a farm-specific security program.
