The animal disease prevention company was founded in 2014 in order to support the livestock farmers in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany in case of an onset of an animal disease. This involves the implementation of the measures prescribed by the veterinary office and to be the main point of contact for the veterinary authorities. The services provided by the prevention company also include the construction of sluices for vehicles and the cleaning and disinfection of the infected farm. Some time ago the company took precautions against African swine fever and commissioned Meier-Brakenberg to develop effective disinfection gates for rapid installation at acute epidemic points. In case of an emergency, these are stored at the animal disease prevention company for immediate use. In addition, Meier-Brakenberg's high-pressure cleaners with petrol engine, disinfection trolleys, boot cleaners and carcass trolleys are available at all times.
