Biosecurity Basics Tipsheet for Pastured Poultry
USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is launching a new outreach campaign focused on preventing the spread of infectious poultry diseases in both commercial and backyard poultry. USDA launched a new web page for the campaign where anyone can find important information about protecting a flock from disease. The site also has a resource section, including a series of checklists each covering specific biosecurity principles. Producers, growers, workers, and enthusiasts alike can use these as regular reminders or cues for maintaining a high level of biosecurity. Resources are available in both English and Spanish, with additional languages coming in the next year. USDA will also offer a webinar explaining the new campaign and showing off the latest resources on November 28, 2018, at 2:30 pm eastern.
