The purpose of the study was to determine teachers’ perception of integrating bio-security measures into the curriculum of Animal Husbandry in Senior Secondary Schools in Abia State. Specifically, the study was guided by seven objectives with corresponding research questions and hypotheses. A Descriptive Survey Research Design (SRD) was adopted for the study. This design was suitable for the study as data were collected from the population for the study using questionnaire with the aim of describing the characteristics of the population. The population for the study was 286 made up of 176 male and 110 female teachers of animal husbandry in public Senior Secondary Schools in Abia State. Census was used; hence there was no sampling. The instrument for data collection was the researcher-developed structured questionnaire titled: Teachers’ Perception Bio-security Integration Questionnaire (TPBIQ) which was validated by three experts in the field of Agricultural Education, all in Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike. The reliability of the instrument was .88 using Cronbach’s Alpha Coefficient Test. Data collected for the study were analyzed using weighted mean of respondents to answer the research questions and standard deviation to show the spread of the respondents from the mean in their responses. Independent sample t-test was used to test the stated null hypotheses at .05-level of significance. The study found new objectives, contents, teachers’ activities, students’ activities, instructional delivery methods and evaluation techniques of bio-security measures for integration into the existing curriculum of animal husbandry. Thus, it was recommended by the study that government through the efforts of the National Education Research and Development Council (NERDC) should integrate these curriculum components on bio-security measures perceived by the teachers of animal husbandry into the curriculum of animal husbandry in senior secondary schools for poultry survivability in Abia State.
