Analysis of good animal husbandry practices and their epidemiological application

Author(s) : B. Benavides Benavides & C. Rosenfeld Miranda

Summary :

A comparative analysis was made of 229 technical specifications for 33 good animal husbandry practices relating to 10 spheres defined by two international organisations and Chile’s Agriculture and Livestock Service (SAG) with the aim of establishing epidemiological indicators and assessing the impact of applying the indicators to disease prevention, control and eradication programmes. The information compiled was analysed using frequency charts and comparative tables. The analysis revealed that 11 good animal husbandry practices and 65 technical specifications could be applied directly to prevention and control programmes. The specifications for good animal husbandry practices did not include assessment systems based on the estimation of epidemiological indicators of morbidity and mortality.
