US - The US Poultry and Egg Association (USPOULTRY) will be hosting a webinar in May addressing the topic of on-farm waterfowl mitigation practices.
The 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 the wild birds.
The webinar will feature Shannon Chandler, wildlife disease biologist, and Clint Turnage, wildlife disease biologist, both from USDA-APHIS Wildlife Services.
Both specialise in disease surveillance pertaining to avian influenza, along with other areas such as plaque and tularemia, feral swine diseases, chronic wasting disease, E. coli, rabies, raccoon roundworm and canine parvovirus.
The webinar will take place on Wednesday 13 May 2015 between 13:00 and 14:15 EDT, and is free of charge to USPOULTRY members. The event continues USPOULTRY's Biosecurity Program offerings.
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.
