Chronic contaminated surfaces

Internal biosecurity is frequently identified as the weakest link in swine biosecurity operations. Two components of the internal biosecurity assessment (BioCheck-U, Ghent) that seem to show consistent poor average numbers are: management of compartments with equipment, and cleaning and disinfection protocols (Laanen, M., et al, 2013; Backhans, A., et al; Postman, M., et al, 2015; and Collineau, L., et al, 2017).
