TUCKER, Ga. – USPOULTRY is making available, given the recent avian influenza news announcements, its “Infectious Disease Risk Management: Practical Biosecurity Resources for Commercial Poultry Producers” program. It was created to help develop more effective biosecurity practices and is designed to be used as a program development tool for personnel training and teaching.

“The avian influenza virus may be carried by migratory birds, and there is a growing incidence being identified along the North American continental flyways,” said Dr. John Glisson, vice president of research programs for USPOULTRY. “The need to have an effective biosecurity program in place is essential and should be implemented immediately.”

This biosecurity program was developed under the guidance of industry and academia members. The program is interactive, very user-friendly and includes educational videos and content, including an introduction video. The program is a multi-purpose, reference, employee training and teaching resource tool.

This program is available to USPOULTRY members free of charge and can be ordered online. To view all of the educational programs USPOULTRY offers, visit
