The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) invites you to join two of our poultry health experts – and a few special guests – for a webinar on March 28. We’ll be celebrating Bird Health Awareness Week by helping anyone who owns or handles poultry learn about how to keep their birds healthy this spring using biosecurity. Please share this information with others in your network who may find this session useful.
The “Biosecurity Basics & Beyond: Tools to Defend Your Flock” webinar will take place on Thursday, March 28 from 2:30-3:30 PM EDT. Register for this FREE webinar today at bit.ly/BirdHealthAwarenessWebinar. We’ll cover some suggestions for how to safely introduce replacement poultry to your flock, as well as important biosecurity practices for spring and recognizing signs of disease. We’ll also share our latest resources.
