Hygiene in poultry farms has two objectives: To preserve the health of the animals, avoiding the proliferation of microorganisms and stress and to avoid contamination of the final products (meat and eggs), offering a quality product to the consumer.
Hygienic measures and environmental prophylaxis of poultry facilities represent an essential aspect of the economy and contribute to food safety (absence of contamination by Salmonella, E. Coli and Campylobacter and others) while preventing or reducing the spread of pathogens. . It is provided by law that animal breeding requires cleaning and hygiene programs. For example, the Normative Instruction of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA) number 36, of 2006, foresees that it is the producer’s job to keep the breeding areas and sheds clean and well organized.
Pathogenic microorganisms are present and can be introduced in poultry, pig and hatchery farms in several ways and, for this reason, hygiene processes are essential.
Disease prevention is always cheaper than dealing with outbreaks. The use of adequate sanitation procedures and products is the best form of control. It is very important to note that thorough cleaning and washing before any sanitizer is applied is what makes the hygiene process effective and efficient.
Products used must have a wide spectrum of action, acting on bacteria, spores, viruses, yeasts and fungi, and must quickly destroy microorganisms, must be easy to remove or leave no residue, besides being non-toxic or low toxicity, easy to apply and safe for operators.
The ideal is that you hire professionals from ATTUALE BRASIL specialized in cleaning poultry, swine and incubators.
The steps and processes of cleaning, disinfection and the vacuum in several farms often observe that in most of the production units these hygiene practices are carried out inappropriately, using only the application of water as a cleaning method, neglecting the application of specific detergents, a fact that compromises correct hygiene.
