Mitigating the Risk of Avian Influenza

Recording Access


Spring is on the way– and with the return of migrating birds, we see predictable waves of poultry infections with influenza. Avian Influenza was devastating to Alberta flocks in 2022. Dr. Jean-Pierre Vaillancourt – a veterinarian, epidemiologist, and professor of veterinary medicine at the Université de Montreal, is an expert in poultry health and biosecurity – and focuses on developing strategies to help to control the risk of infection with diseases such as Avian Influenza. This presentation will review actions and essential biosecurity steps to help maintain healthy flocks and minimize the chance of Avian Influenza infections on farm.
