In order to keep our animals safe from both foreign animal diseases and acts of terrorism, the NJDA can assist in developing boiosecurity plans and emergency plans for your farm. In addition, we offer free signage to help you protect yourself and your farm. For more information, please contact the Division of Animal Health at (609) 671-6400.

We have developed a number of Best Management Practices to help “Keep The Garden State Safe.”
