Full course description
This course will go over three big potential routes for pathogen introduction onto a farm. The first being wild animals and insects, the second being transportation of feed into the facility, and finally the removal of deadstock from the farm.
For all of these things, we have to assess the risk and calculate the cost of a disease outbreak and the likelihood that an outbreak could occur. The cost of intervention for these items is high, so creating an effective plan requires us to optimize cost versus risk for the productive system.
This is a self-paced course. You may start and finish the course at any time. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be granted one hour of continuing education (CE). College of Veterinary Medicine is an authorized CE provider, and our courses are equivalent to RACE approved. This course is expected to take one hour to complete.
This course is 100% online. All the lectures and assessments are on-demand to meet your busy schedule.
