Outbreak Wet Lab

We will be joining AABP (American Association of Bovine Practitioners) members for an Outbreak Wetlab on Saturday, April 19th from 8am to about 1pmDr. Linda Detwiler will be flying in to share her wisdom of infectious diseases and the handling of outbreaks and managing of herd health. As the former Veterinarian in Charge for USDA, APHIS Veterinary Services and a current professor in the Department of Pathobiology and Population Medicine for the College of Veterinary Medicine, Mississippi State University Dr. Detwiler will walk us through an outbreak simulation of bovine TB and challenge YOU to contain the outbreak and manage the problem effectively. This lab also involves REAL LIVE COWS, so come ready to learn a lot and get dirty. We will be meeting on Saturday morning, April 19th at 8am at the DMC to carpool to the dairy, about a half hour drive from Fort Collins. Breakfast burritos and warm drinks will be provided. Please bring your boots and coveralls. This event will be capped and a lottery will be held to determine participants.
E-mail for directions to the dairy if you need to meet us there rather than carpool 🙂
