WATT Poultry webinar logoWatch on demand now to learn best practices for daily biosecurity procedures on your poultry operations.

It is best practice to develop daily biosecurity procedures on poultry operations to help reduce the possibility of introducing infectious diseases such as Avian Influenza and Exotic Newcastle and others. The introduction of a highly pathogenic, contagious disease organism into poultry flocks could result in serious economic consequences for producers. The effectiveness of a biosecurity program can be optimized by participation at all levels. NAE production programs cannot be successful without a sound poultry biosecurity program. The result of cutting corners on a poultry biosecurity program can allow for the entry of pathogens into poultry operations. The featured speaker will be Dr. Algis Martinez, Global Veterinary Services at Cobb Vantress Inc. Boehringer Ingelheim


  1. Learn how poor ventilation systems can affect the respiratory tract of birds and make them more susceptible to bacterial and viral infections.
  2. Practice effective rodent and insect control programs to reduce the risk of contracting or spreading a disease within the operation
  3. Learn more about why no pets such as dogs, cats or other animals should be allowed to enter into poultry houses.
  4. Gain insight on why those who have contact with birds though all stages of the poultry process should practice enhanced biosecurity procedures.
