Farm Biosecurity is a postgraduate master study that offers necessary education to doctors of veterinary medicine and other related professionals through upgrading their knowledge and skills acquired in their graduate studies for work in the field of farm biosecurity, aiming at protection of animal health and welfare, along with human and environmental protection. Nowadays, the concept of biosecurity, which implies an integral approach to managing the risks for human and animal health, including control of agricultural pests and environmental safety, has been integrated in the context of veterinary hygiene and public health. One of the special tasks of biosecurity is control of zoonoses, as well as of other risks of animal origin threatening humans and the environment. Therefore, any livestock production without engagement of these experts is hard to imagine.
