Canada invests in biosecurity technology to mitigate the risk of disease outbreaks
March 22, 2022 by Manure Manager
The Government of Canada is investing up to $113,575 for Be Seen Be Safe Ltd. to determine and promote a new technology system to help protect the livestock industry in the event of disease outbreak.
Building on its existing farm health technology platform, Be Seen Be Safe is using the funds to research, test and develop a hardware solution that will allow real-time tracking and tracing of trailers. After the trials are complete, the company will publish and widely distribute recommendations on the best-fit technology along with information on deployment. By using data to monitor the movement of these vehicles, farmers can contain an outbreak, limit losses and reduce the time it takes to return to normal business.
The investment was made due to the major impact that disease outbreak can have not only on animal welfare and health but also supply chain and productivity.
