Site Entry Protocols for Service Providers – Manitoba Pork
Service providers that move from farm to farm provide a legitimate risk of spreading disease if they do not follow adequate protocols for visiting sites. They should always contact the farm manager ahead of their visit and follow the farm’s entry protocols.
Service Provider Checklist – Manitoba Pork
Service providers should contact barn personnel ahead of an intended visit and follow the farm’s biosecurity protocols for entry. Visits should be postponed if you have signs of cold, flu or stomach issues. Service providers should follow this checklist when visiting a farm.
Effective Disinfectants, pH and Temperatures against PEDv
PEDv is stable between pH 5.0-9.0 and up to 60°C. Certain disinfectants – such as Virkon S and Synergize – have been proven effective against the virus if adequate contact/contact time is allowed. PEDv is most susceptible to hot, dry conditions; allowing surfaces to fully dry will help kill the virus.
Feed Delivery Biosecurity – National Pork Board (US)
Feed delivery personnel should not enter the barn and should only access the area around the feed bins. Bagged feed should be limited and should be delivered to a separate farm building. Delivery personnel should wear clean clothes and disposable boot covers when delivering feed. Feed trucks should be fully washed and disinfected at least once weekly or immediately following any visits to high-risk sites.
Biosecure Deadstock Removal – National Pork Board (US)
Deadstock pick-up should occur away from the barns, preferably near a public access road. Deadstock haulers should not need to cross the same path as farm and delivery vehicles/workers.
