Calculate a horse farm’s risks with Equine Guelph’s biosecurity risk calculator, a tool for horse owners to generate a report that grades barn owners and operators on biosecurity management practices.

See if the score offers a green, amber or red light.

“Every horse owner should think about a biosecurity management plan,” said Karen Ann Paradis, equine product manager of Vétoquinol. “Having a solid understanding of equine health, infectious disease and disease control is paramount in reducing biosecurity risk in a high-risk industry.”

After taking the 10 minute, 42 question biosecurity calculator quiz – turn amber scores green by increasing knowledge with Equine Guelph’s biosecurity workshops this March and two week esession being held April 16 to 29.
