AVIAN FLU PROTECTION FOR POULTRY FLOCKS BEGINS AT THE FRONT GATE… AND STARTS WITH FEET FIRST
Many government agencies across the USA and the World have been monitoring the outbreak of the Avian Influenza very closely in recent months. Poultry producers across the US have been highly encouraged by OSHA and the American Poultry Association to follow strict Bio-Security practices to protect their flocks.
Contamination on shoes from workers or visitors coming into poultry yards is one of the leading ways that avian flu can be spread through your flock. Following proper personal protective equipment guidelines, which includes disposable shoe covers, is one of the easiest ways to prevent the spread of the avian flu. Poultry producers across the country have found a great defense is using I.S.A Corporation flatfoot disposable shoe covers, and in some cases when higher coverage is needed, our Bigfoot-CE shoe covers.
Since the beginning of 2015, ISA Corporation has added over a dozen new customers in the poultry industry across the United States. The spread of the usage of I.S.A Corporation disposable shoe covers, such as the Flatfoot or the Bigfoot-CE is proving beneficial with halting the spread of the avian flu and protecting poultry industries flocks.
