Anitox is sponsoring a Five-Part Dr Clifford’s Webinar Series, which focuses on new research into feed as a fomite for pathogens, innovative predictive tools, and scientifically proven mitigation strategies to prevent pathogen transmission in the earliest stages of the food supply chain, resulting in improved food safety, live bird performance and long-term profitability.
Animal feed manufacturers, poultry and swine nutritionists and biosecurity and safety professionals will learn about virus transmission pathways and why biosecurity efforts aimed to prevent the spread of viruses through fomite exposure provide the best return on investment and long-lasting animal performance improvement. The first webinar “Could local sourcing help control feed ingredients’ microbial quality?” will discuss how global raw material transit impacts animal feed ingredient microbial quality and food safety.
Because international trade is fundamental to prosperity, health and environmental sustainability, it is essential to identify disease carriers and intervene at critical control points along the food supply chain. Bobby Acord, Former Administrator, USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), will address two of the most critical control points for food safety: animal feed and associated raw materials. Learn about the economic costs associated with trade halts, quarantines or, worse yet, the need to depopulate livestock farms and how biosecurity measures can help ensure food safety and security. Bobby will be joined by Dr. John Clifford, Former USDA Chief Veterinary Officer, and Dr. Kurt Richardson, Chief Science Officer, Anitox, for an informative Q&A session at the conclusion of his overview.
The webinar will take place on Tuesday, September 15 at 10:00AM EST. Register here!
