Free Workshop – Lunch Included
Foster Farms veterinarians will host the state’s top poultry specialists – including State Veterinarian Dr. Annette Jones, California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), California Poultry Federation (CPF) and UC Davis – in a FREE workshop to help prevent the deadly spread of virulent Newcastle Disease (VND) among backyard chicken and turkey flocks. The seminar will provide interactive sessions on biosecurity, bird health tips, and the latest outbreak data.
Other panelists include Foster Farms’ veterinarians and biosecurity experts Drs. Robert O’Connor and Charles Corsiglia, poultry science specialist Dr. Maurice Pitesky from UC Davis and veterinarian pathologist Dr. Asli Mete from California Animal Health and Food Safety Laboratory (CAFHS), along with representatives from the California Poultry Federation.
*Note: No live birds will be present nor permitted at the event for biosecurity reasons. Restricting transport and avoiding exposure to other flocks or individuals handling live birds helps prevent disease.
