For biosecurity, fifty (50) feet should be the absolute minimum distance between buildings of large capacity. I would extend the distance to 65 feet if the parcel of land allows. This distance will hopefully allow for natural ventilation if you are equipped or prevent cross-ventilation in power-ventilated housing.

Thank you for your question.
