Speakers will include experts from the US Department of Agriculture, as well as veterinarians from layer and turkey companies that were involved in the outbreak.
Topics will include details on the factors that contributed to the spread of the virus and the efforts to develop vaccines for potential use in any future eradication efforts.
Representatives of the commercial egg and turkey industries will provide valuable insight into the efforts required to control and eradicate the disease and give the audience an understanding of the challenges this disease provided to the commercial companies involved.
