Biosecurity Challenges in Livestock Farms

In recent years, the agriculture industry has faced increasing challenges in maintaining biosecurity standards to safeguard livestock health. Pig and poultry farms, in particular, have been susceptible to disease outbreaks that can have severe economic and animal welfare implications. In response to this pressing issue, farms are actively seeking innovative solutions to improve biosecurity measures. This case study explores the implementation of DofyGate, an automated barrier system, at a pig and poultry farm to enhance biosecurity protocols.

Our barriers ensure safe traffic control leaving no excuses for visitors to follow the required measures to protect livestock at that location. Dependent on the positioning of the barrier it could be used to ensure that a visitor signs in and disinfects their vehicle. We also integrate with wheel washer systems to automate the disinfecting process. In this instance the barrier holds the vehicle until the system is up to pressure for an effective process; then, automatically opening to release the vehicle.

Dofygate comes remote controlled as standard but other forms of automatic opening are available. These include push button entry for minimum security but ensuring an action is needed to open the barrier, slowing traffic and allowing visitors to take required action. There are also keypad or RFID opening and telephone opening. Please give us a call to learn more about the options we have available allowing oyu to decide what is best for your site.

Challenges and Solutions

Sites face limitations with traditional manual gates, hindering their ability to enforce strict biosecurity measures, whilst staying efficient. DofyGate was implemented to automate access points, providing a solution. The barrier’s automatic operation, remote control capabilities, and sensor technology addressed the challenges faced by the site in preventing disease outbreaks.

Benefits and Achievements

Enhanced Biosecurity Measures

The implementation of DofyGate results in a significant improvement in the a site’s biosecurity measures if the opportunity is maximised. The automated gate system effectively controls access points, minimizing the risk of disease transmission.

Operational Efficiency and Streamlined Management

DofyGate’s automated nature helps to streamline site operations, reducing the time and effort required for site entrance management allowing team members to focus on other tasks.

BioSecurity and Accountability

Enabling remote management of vehicles visiting sites, signing it and disinfecting their vehicles helps to promote awareness & accountability.

Recommendations and Conclusions

Based on the success of the DofyGate implementation, similar pig and poultry farms are encouraged to explore automated gate systems to bolster their biosecurity measures. The customisable nature of DofyGate allows for adaptation to various farm settings, providing a versatile solution. In conclusion, the integration of DofyGate proved to be a strategic move for the farm, showcasing the effectiveness of innovative technologies in mitigating biosecurity challenges within the livestock industry.
