Biosecurity, Emergency, and Disaster Planning Webinars
Biosecurity for Horses
Biosecurity, as it relates to horses, is referring to management practices that reduce the risk of infectious disease on a farm. This webinar, offered by My Horse University and Extension Horses Inc., will give an overview of biosecurity and discuss preventative measures you can take to keep your horses safe at home and when traveling to other farms or events. This is a very timely topic with the upcoming show and trail riding season ahead. The information in this webinar will be pertinent to horse owners, farm managers, and equine event managers.
