Pathogens 101: Manure and Veterinary Pathogens of Concern, Who are they and what do they do?

The movement of bacteria and viruses from AFOs, municipal waste water, septic systems, and wildlife continues to complicate water, soil, and food quality throughout the country and world. Though much has been learned in recent years, misconceptions and unknown areas still abound. This webinar will serve as an overview of bacteria, viruses, and parasites found in manure and other land-applied wastes as well as pathogens of veterinary concern. This will be an overview of these pathogens, who they are, how they affect you, their typical levels in manure and wastes, veterinary concerns, and overall prevalence in the environment.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.

Presenters include:
  • Lisa Durso, USDA-ARS, Lincoln, NE
  • John Brooks, USDA-ARS, Mississippi State, MS
  • Dr. Dustin Loy, Nebraska Veterinary Diagnostic Center
Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webcast information page.
