Beef Research School – Managing Biosecurity with Beef Cattle

Biosecurity is one of those terms that brings to mind people in hazmat suits and areas roped off with red tape and biohazard signs. The simple truth about the term biosecurity is that it consists of a lot of things that producers already do on the farm.

We discuss what biosecurity means on the feedlot and the pasture, what producers need to be cautious of and why a biosecurity strategy in beef cattle is less cut & dried than it is with other livestock.
