Workshop to cover proper drug use on farms

cowFood animal veterinarians are invited to a one-day seminar on April 24 to learn how hazard analysis and critical points control (HACCP) can guide on-farm drug use. In cooperation with the Wisconsin VMA, OVMA will present a proven, six-step plan for proper drug use on dairy and beef cattle operations. During this one-day workshop, you will be provided with skills and tool sets that will allow you to better serve your clients in the food production system.

To learn more about the workshop and to register, and to see what other seminars are being offered, please visit the OVMA Workshops & One-Day Programs page.
