Biosecure entry education trailer (BEET)
These biosecure entries are designed to make it easier for people to remove potentially contaminated outside clothing and boots and put on barn specific clothing and boots.
An enclosed trailer was modified for education and training to enhance poultry barn biosecurity based on Danish entry principles. Two primary purposes and audiences are targeted:
- Managers responsible for developing biosecurity protocols. The trailer can be used to assess and practice their biosecurity protocols for entry into poultry barns based on Danish entry concepts.
- Employees expected to adhere to biosecurity protocols. The trailer can be used by employees to practice company protocols and deal with unusual situations that may arise.
The educational program is based on the concept that there are multiple ways to implement enhanced biosecurity protocols. Owners and managers need to decide which practices fit their management need. Employees need training to know how to properly implement Danish entry protocols. The BEET trailer is mobile and available for training purposes on-site, statewide.
