Farm personnel/visitor traffic within and between swine farms remains a major cause of disease transmission and outbreaks. A new 3D biometric identification system is now available to provide 24, 7 monitoring and pro-active control of human access into and between facilities and that allows the near-real-time collaborative sharing of facility-access information. Dr. Parsons and Kent Andersen will review the importance of reliable premise-access controls to ensure the wellbeing of animals and employees, and demonstrate how these new technologies can be incorporated into today’s swine production facilities.
