In 2013 the CCA and CFIA, along with beef industry input from other producer organizations, provincial/territorial governments, academia and AAFC, created the Canadian On-Farm Beef Cattle Biosecurity Standard and Implementation Manual.
These documents provide a set of risk management practices designed to assist producers in managing disease on all types of Canadian beef cattle operations. The Implementation Manual also includes a Biosecurity Self-Assessment Tool to help guide beef producers and their veterinarians in identifying biosecurity risks and suggested practices of prevention.
