  • Practical protocols for disease prevention. Biosecurity plans help prevent and control diseases that in turn have health and financial benefits to your operation. In this interactive session, participants will create a practical biosecurity plan utilizing maps of their farm. These maps and plans can then be taken home and implemented to protect farms from potential biosecurity issues.
  • Participants will work with a Pearls of Production team member to define their farm boundaries before the conference and a full-color map will be available for the session.
  • Bovine Telehealth-What to do when you can’t get a veterinarian right away. Learn how to collect and package samples for diagnosis, take blood samples, take temperatures, and learn other symptoms to help you communicate with your vet.
