What are the General recommendations for Breeder Farming?
- The golden rule of breeder management is to have one age and one breed per site, so as to follow the "all-in, all-out" principle. The choice of the site for the farm, as well as the layout of the houses must aim at keeping them free from any source of contamination. A changing room should be made available at the entrance of the site. It must be used by everybody entering the farm (a shower and change of clothes).
When the old flock is removed and before the arrival of the new flock, all houses and equipment must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected according to strict procedures and protocols. This should be followed by a resting period of at least 10 days.
