Join Us for an Informative Webinar: Practicing Effective Biosecurity during Competition Season
Want a refresher on competition biosecurity, SIRC?
With competition season upon us, it is a great time to review the habits that minimize disease spread at competition or back at home as much as possible. Biosecurity can seem daunting or excessive, but the impacts of disease outbreaks are devasting.
You are invited to join the EC sponsored webinar that will review the basic principles of biosecurity to support a safe and fun competition season for everyone. The webinar will take place on May 25, 2022 from 12-1pm EDT and will cover the latest research on disease risks, actions you can take to prevent disease spread, and methods to promote and maintain good biosecurity habits.
