Biosecurity for Your Bird Population Virtual Training
April 7, 2016 - Author: Katie Ockert
Proper biosecurity efforts are a key tool in preventing the spread of any disease, including the deadly avian influenza virus which devastated poultry producers across the U.S. in 2015. To help Michigan poultry owners learn more about the avian influenza epidemic and effective biosecurity practices they can implement to prevent the disease, the United States Department of Agriculture—Animal and Plant Health Division (APHIS) and Michigan State University Extension collaborated to conduct a series of in-person trainings in 2016.
A virtual presentation of this training is now available for those unable to attend a live session. This training will provide poultry producers, owners of backyard flocks, 4-H members and volunteers, as well as anyone interested in poultry and biosecurity, with practical information on how to implement simple biosecurity practices to keep your flocks safe.
