Conscientious producers and feed manufacturers have an obligation to produce safe food. With emerging disease risks, feed biosecurity must be a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year priority.
Keeping pathogens out is the first step to an on-farm biosecurity program. An often-overlooked aspect in biosecurity plans is the role of feed and feed ingredients, which may carry certain pathogens which are detrimental to animal health or welfare. Proper HACCP-based controls should be implemented to reduce the risk of disease transmission through feed. Sal CURB® is an effective part of any feed biosecurity and pathogen control program.
Maintaining feed and feed ingredients Salmonella-negative for up to 21 days, Sal CURB is supported by a trained and experienced team.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, biosecurity is the protection of agricultural animals from any type of infectious agent - viral, bacterial, fungal or parasitic. Biosecurity plans focus on reducing disease transmission which are typically transmitted through contact with infected animals or various carriers such as people, equipment, feed or pests.
