UK - Pig producers and their vets talk a lot about biosecurity... but what actually is it? "When it comes to determining what is good biosecurity, it's all a bit hazy, said Richard Lister.

As a result the taskforce health group he chairs has asked Zoe Davies, Sam Hoste and Stan Done to look at best practice, and to prepare guidance notes. "The idea is that we eventually come up with something that might be suitable for an assurance scheme module.

"We felt this was an opportunity to do something positive, and with Cost and Responsibility Sharing in the offing will demonstrate we are actually doing something, not just talking about it."
