Basics of Biosecurity


September 13, 2019


The Basics of Biosecurity lesson is designed to introduce participants to the procedures and general concepts of biosecurity related to 4-H animal projects. The lesson features a hands-on component to help participants understand that we can’t always see the biosecurity challenges we’re facing.



After completing this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe why it’s important for animal agriculture operations to consistently follow biosecurity measures.
  • Describe animal disease prevention strategies.
  • Identify and name the biosecurity practices currently in use in their own animal operations.
