Consumers and regulatory officials are becoming increasingly aware of the human health risk of the presence of micro-organisms or chemicals in the agricultural environment. Providing 'on-farm food safety' programmes which address the daily management of the production unit with regard to animal health and well-being, public health and environmental health must be a top priority for agriculturalists and veterinarians. Developing critical control point management (CCPM) procedures for animal and human health concerns is a viable approach to aid in alleviating public concerns about dairy products and the food supply in general. Such CCPM programmes may be created for individual production units based upon risk analysis, total quality management and hazard analysis and critical control point principles. Implementation of these programmes will be essential both in addressing food safety concerns for the resident population of a nation and in developing or maintaining international markets for the export of animal products.
