Biosecurity Series

In the Barn - #4 Clean First and then Disinfect

Clean surfaces, stalls, trailers and tack/equipment is key to infection control.

3 Steps to Cleaning:
1) Clean - brush off all visible manure, soil and bedding (smooth surfaces are best - so patch knots and fill cracks with a polyurethane if you can)
2) Wash - with soap and water and let dry
3) Disinfect - apply disinfectant; ask your veterinarian.
