Contribution: "As a participant in the project National Platform for Improving Biosecurity in Dairy Cattle, I was involved in the assessment of biosecurity of the cattle farms in Macedonia. This was done using assessment survey which was previously validated. Then, analysis of the data was done and the risk factors for introduction and transmission of diseases were identified. I closely collaborate with poultry farms regarding poultry health and production issues. This enabled me to have a close insight of the farm operations and their level of implementation of biosecurity measures. The experience and knowledge gained through aforementioned activities will help me to contribute to the scope of work envisaged under the WG1 and WG3."
