Deliver a clean site to the owner/manager efficiently and safely while maintaining bio-security.


All birds and materials likely to be destroyed are valued for compensation.

  • Use farm records for numbers & ages
  • Take photos of exotic/rare species
  • Record likely materials

eg feed, packaging


Birds are culled using a method that maintains animal welfare & reduces exposure of personnel

  • Method – eg use of CO2 – see SOP
  • Maintain feed, water & environment
  • Risk assessment to be reviewed at start
  • Maintain records

Carcasses & materials are disposed of using a method that maintains bio-security & reduces exposure of personnel

  • Method – eg composting in shed, disposal off site, disposal on site, burning
  • Limit numbers of people on site
  • Risk assessment to be reviewed at start
  • Maintain records

Buildings & equipment are decontaminated twice prior to stock introduction

  • Use an approved method & chemical
  • Use PPE
  • Risk assessment to be reviewed at start
