Barn entry in four easy steps!

A physical bench at the barn entry is a best practice and a demonstrated way to improve biosecurity compliance. The physical barrier should be:

  • Flush to the ground to prevent air movement across from one side to the other, and
  • Touching the wall on both sides to prevent people from simply walking around the barrier.

Step 1: removal of outerwear

Step 2: Change shoes without touching socks to the floor!

Step 3: Wash hands or use disinfectant.

Step 4: Put on your designated clothes or coveralls and you’re ready for the barn!
