Farmer Breakfast Meeting

Farmer Breakfast Meeting Just yesterday I held a Farmers Breakfast Meeting on animal health issues. State Veterinarian Dr. Kevin Brightbill was our featured speaker and focused much of his discussion on the importance of biosecurity on farms. Dr. Brightbill gave an excellent presentation and helped us to understand how critical it is to safeguard our food system starting right with how animals are raised. Food security is closely tied to national security.

This article has a refresher on biosecurity measures at they relate to poultry animals but could also be useful for other animal farmers. You can also read a Reading Eagle synopsis of the meeting here.
