Come visit us at the OPIC/OSHAB Booth at the Ontario Pork Congress and enter a draw to win up to $1,000 for construction or improvement of a Danish Entry system or supplies.



OSHAB promotes the use of a Danish entry as a low cost, effective way to improve your on-farm biosecurity and reduce your risk of PRRSV transmission and indeed, the mechanical transmission of many other diseases as well. We’d like to give you a chance to win up to $1,000 towards the development or upgrade of a Danish Entry on your farm or to purchase supplies for your current Danish entry system.



If you are a service provider, we encourage you to provide your producer customers with this information – a great opportunity to improve on-farm biosecurity.
