BPEX Biosecurity App

Following on the success of the award winning Practical Pig app developed for BPEX, Rade has been selected to design and develop a second app and supporting website.

Blythburgh pigletThe aim of the app is to alert stockmen and visitors to pig units of the potential hazards of poor biosecurity. Using interactive video and multiple choice questions, the user will be able to watch and learn how to avoid spreading disease.

Why is this important? Two diseases, PEDv and Salmonella, have started to make an appearance across eastern Europe, the USA and Canada and they have the potential to cause pig farmers huge issues with the health of their herd. The app will be at the vanguard of some very serious measures to be taken within the industry by using education on prevention.

So actually, Rade is helping to protect the national pig herd from some devastating diseases and ensuring the continuation of a decent bacon sandwich.

Filming starts soon and the app is scheduled for launch in the autumn.
