The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has released the Biosecurity for Canadian Cervid Farms Producer Planning Guide.

Under the Growing Forward 2 (GF2) Agricultural Policy Framework, the CFIA worked in collaboration with the Cervid Biosecurity Advisory Committee (CerBAC) which included representatives from the Canadian Cervid Alliance, provincial governments, industry organizations, producers, academia and private veterinarians, to develop this Guide.

The Guide provides strategies, best practices and planning tools to help cervid producers develop and implement farm-level biosecurity plans. The guidelines and recommendations are focused on minimizing infectious disease risks from a broad range of pathogens.

The Guide supports the voluntary National Cervid Farm-Level Biosecurity Standard that was released last year, in June 2017.

Together, the Standard and the Guide are:
