Biosecurity is the protection of agricultural animals from any type of infectious agent—viral, bacterial, fungal or parasitic. People can spread diseases as they move within a facility and from one facility to another. Animals or equipment introduced into a facility can bring pathogens with them. Among the many biosecurity procedures that can prevent these types of disease transmission are such measures as use of protective clothing, waiting periods for new animals and visitors and cleaning.
