~Connect with other small-scale livestock producers in the region.

 

Who should attend:
The growing consumer interest in local food production and sustainability, and increased preference for fresh, local and organic products in the last years has been linked to an increase the number of small-scale farms. One of the recognized challenges faced by small-scale livestock producers is the lack of access to technical information and veterinary oversight. Beginning Jan. 2017 all antimicrobials that are medically important and administered in feed or water will require a prescription from a veterinarian with a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship. In CA, beginning in Jan.1, 2018, SB 27, all antimicrobials over-the-counter will need a prescription. This workshop will provide information regarding for animal health and husbandry, antibiotic resistance and use in small-scale livestock farms.
