Partnering for Dairy Antimicrobial Stewardship:
A Conference for Farmers and Veterinarians in the West
In consideration of the current state and federal health agencies’ policies surrounding the COVID-19 national emergency declaration, we are offering the “Partnering for Antimicrobial Stewardship: A Conference for Farmers and Veterinarians in the West” live conference as a set of four webinars in July. Each webinar is unique, so we hope you will take advantage of all four.
Antimicrobial resistance threatens the efficacy of drugs that ensure animal health and welfare as well as poses a threat to human health. Antimicrobial stewardship is a set of practices that aim to slow the rate at which bacteria develop resistance to antimicrobial drugs.
The California Department of Food and Agriculture in collaboration with Washington State University and the University of California, Davis, are hosting these FREE webinars to bring veterinarians and dairy producers “together” to learn about the threat of antimicrobial resistance and provide insights for practical antimicrobial stewardship plans for their farms.
Veterinarians can obtain continuing education credits for attending.
Date and Times (in Pacific Time):
– July 8, 2020: 6 PM to 8 PM
