Avian influenza is a major concern for the poultry industry. The best way to prevent avian influenza on poultry farms is by incorporating biosecurity measures. At the 2018 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) is hosting a biosecurity program designed for poultry and egg producers and live operations personnel. The “Defend the Flock – Biosecurity Basics for Poultry & Egg Producers and Live Operations Personnel” program will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018, and is free for all registered IPPE attendees.
Topics to be discussed include: Egg Biosecurity, Turkey Biosecurity, Sharing of Knowledge from Recent Avian Influenza Outbreaks, National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) Biosecurity Measures, and the Use of Hidden Cameras in Biosecurity.
IPPE, the world's largest annual poultry, feed and meat industry trade show, will be held Jan. 30 – Feb. 1, 2018. IPPE is a collaboration of three trade shows—the International Feed Expo, International Poultry Expo and International Meat Expo—representing the entire chain of protein production and processing. The event is sponsored by USPOULTRY, the American Feed Industry Association and the North American Meat Institute.
