Advice

We advise all kinds of businesses, companies, local authorities/governments and private individuals about biosecure measures making it possible to avoid contamination with an animal disease. We work with the client to look at the preparations put in place.

The training course also covers every other aspect of culling activities. Experience has shown that where local authorities/governments are well prepared, the money that they have spent on preparation reaps dividends if an animal disease emerges. Where there is an outbreak in this situation, there is no panic and no emergency resources are used to combat the disease, but the response is calm and thorough, which means that costs can be kept to a minimum. Contracts have already been entered into with gas suppliers, the suppliers of pesticides; clothing and equipment are in stock and are available for immediate use. Added to this, and most importantly of all, the people responsible for the culling are all trained. This ensures that any suffering
