As a further continuation of its Biosecurity Program offerings, the U.S. Poultry & Egg Assn. (USPOULTRY) will host a webinar addressing “ON-Farm Waterfowl Mitigation Practices” at 1-2:15 p.m. (EDT) on May 13. The webinar is free of charge to USPOULTRY members.
The webinar will feature Shannon Chandler, wildlife disease biologist, and Clint Turnage, wildlife disease biologist, both from the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service's Wildlife Services. Both specialize in disease surveillance pertaining to avian influenza, along with other areas such as plaque and tularemia, feral swine diseases, chronic wasting disease, Escherichia coli, rabies, raccoon roundworm and canine parvovirus.
The “ON-Farm Waterfowl Mitigation Practices” webinar will discuss how producers can reduce congregations of wild birds (mainly waterfowl) on farm premises and methods that farmers can implement to help make farms unattractive to wild birds.
Participants will be able to submit questions throughout the webinar, which will be answered during a question and answer period at the end of the program. All participants will receive a copy of the recorded program and a one-page document containing important points from the webinar.
