Biosafety for the agro-industrial group of companies "Dniprovska" is a set of measures aimed at protecting against the negative impact of factors that can interfere with production, including preventing the emergence and spread of infectious diseases and ensuring compliance with biosecurity rules in all structural units, such as parent herd breeding sites, hatcheries, compound feed plants, broiler plants production, slaughterhouses and meat processing, compound feed production, etc.
Biosecurity principles we follow:
We create the location of poultry farms and poultry breeding areas in such a way that different age groups of broiler chickens are placed in separate areas. This helps to increase the level of biosecurity, prevent the introduction of infections into poultry farms, and reduce the risk of infection and epidemics among livestock.
Operation in "closed type" mode.
We provide full closed access and movement control in facilities to minimize cross-contamination pathways. Access to the production areas is allowed only to the personnel of the relevant unit, and for outsiders - limited and allowed only upon prior agreement with the relevant management.
We adhere to pest control, disinfection of premises, sanitation, and hygiene rules. After each cultivation cycle, the production areas, containers, and equipment are spotless, washed, and disinfected to prevent the occurrence of diseases.
Vaccination and prevention.
We vaccinate all chickens against diseases in accordance with Ukrainian legislation. A mandatory measure that helps to avoid the occurrence and spread of diseases is prevention, which is based on the use of certain specific methods and means that ensure the immunity of poultry to infectious diseases, namely - vaccination.
Development and implementation of the monitoring and control system.
Our company uses a modern system to identify and immediately eliminate possible problems in the field of biosafety. We ensure thorough control over the conditions of keeping poultry, the condition of production premises, the disinfection process, and other aspects that may affect the level of biosafety of our products.
Poultry health control.
We have implemented a system for monitoring the health of birds and their microbiological status. This allows us to quickly detect any possible disease and respond to it with the necessary control measures.
Training and professional development of personnel.
We pay special attention to staff training and conduct systematic training on biosafety and bird health, and organize training and seminars for all employees.
Health control of production workers.
All employees undergo mandatory medical training before starting work at enterprises. We regularly check workers' knowledge of compliance with biosafety rules and conduct staff training.
Strict biological security measures.
We adhere to international standards and keep poultry in closed production facilities, each such production facility is surrounded by a disinfection barrier and located at least 300 – 1200 meters from the nearest population centers.
Compliance with modern methods of poultry farming.
Careful control of feed supply, minimization of personnel-stock contact, and purchase of breeding stock that is more resistant to various diseases.
