Webinar on Poultry Safety and Update on HPAI Outbreak in Ohio

The recent HPAI outbreak in multiple counties in Ohio has resulted in over 4 million birds being affected and prompted a lot of questions.  Tim McDermott will be hosting a webinar on Tuesday December 19th at 6pm in collaboration with the USDA Incident Response Team to try to get as much information to our communities as well as provide an opportunity for you to learn more about the outbreak and how it is affecting both the Ohio poultry industry and the backyard/4-H poultry communities.  This is a great opportunity to ask questions and see what educational support is available.

Here is the list of topics to be discussed:

  • Biosecurity basics
  • Symptoms and signs of HPAI in poultry
  • Control Area – what is it and what does it mean for backyard farms?
  • Surveillance Zone – what is it and what does it mean for backyard farms?
  • How long does a quarantine last?
  • What is the status of the incident?
  • What can you do if you have questions?
  • Q&A
