BEF Biosecurity Project

There has been unanimous support for BEF to take the lead on biosecurity matters on behalf of its 19 member bodies.

Having raised awareness of the welfare, sporting fixture and economic consequences of a disease outbreak, the BEF has developed a plan to be implemented by member bodies to share information about how to improve yard biosecurity and therefore horse health - based on the features of the checklist developed by Defra, the Disease Coalition and BEVA here

We have developed an Emergency Response Committee to assist all BEF member bodies, their competition centres and their participants with a consistent set of advice protocols for what they should do in the event of disease.
