Contenuti dell'insegnamento

The course will treat the control measures that can be applied on farm to control zoonosis and food borne infectious disease to implement a longitudinal integrated food safety assurance approach in the pre -harvest phase of the food chain, in compliance with national and international guidelines and legislation.
Lessons will deliver outlines on the major zoonosis and will cover principles of biosecurity, vaccination and hygiene practices applied in food producing animal farms.
The practical part of the course will consist of visits to farms to practice the assessment of possible risk factors related to their structural characteristics and management. Working groups will be formed for the preparation of reports on the overall risks identified in the visited farms, discussion of the collected data and proposals to effectively achieve zoonosis prevention, improvement of animal health and welfare and consequently increase food safety.
