The purpose of the National Farm Biosecurity Manual – Poultry Production is to establish a minimum set of biosecurity standards, applicable to all poultry producers (including ratites). The manual was produced for commercial producers, but the principles of good biosecurity apply to any poultry or bird-raising operation, including free-range egg production. This manual provides the minimum biosecurity standards required for producers within the industry to build on within their own policies on biosecurity.
