National Farm Biosecurity Manual Poultry Production
by Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry
Edition: First Edition, May 2009
The purpose of the manual is to establish a minimum set of biosecurity standards, applicable to all
poultry producers (including ratites). While the manual was produced with commercial producers
in mind, the principles of good biosecurity apply to any poultry or bird-raising operation.
Individual producers and companies may wish to develop enhanced biosecurity manuals, which
should nevertheless incorporate these minimum standards in addition to any specific company
or industry sector requirements.
