Cooper Farms builds biosecurity buildings
Wednesday, October 02, 2013 2:18 PM

OAKWOOD – Cooper Farms has recently been stirring up dirt and making room for a new step in their biosecurity on Ohio 613 just east of Oakwood. A new drying shed has recently completed as the first phase of their biosecurity building project.

“This biosecurity building is just one more step in our endeavor to provide the best animal care and health,” said Bud Koenig, Cooper Farms facility maintenance manager. “The drying shed that has been completed allows us to bake the semi and trailers that haul our animals from the breeder farms to growout farm, which kills any pathogens or bacteria that could have attached itself during the trip.”
