National Farm Biosecurity Manual For Chicken Growers
by Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry
Edition: 1st., 2010
The present document is an adaptation of the generic poultry manual to reflect the requirements as they apply to the commercial chicken meat industry. The Manual applies to commercial meat chicken farms (broiler farms) from the time of delivery of birds, until pick-up, slaughter or disposal of live birds. While the Manual stipulates the minimum requirements for any meat chicken farm, it should be noted that biosecurity
measures in place on breeder farms would generally be much more stringent, reflecting the economic importance and the extended life cycle of breeder flocks.
