I enjoyed the webinar. The information presented was very interesting, especially during these times when biosecurity is very important. Something that I found very interesting is that swines are considered to be by many people the ones guilty of transmitting diseases, but in reality humans are the ones that are bringing and transmitting more diseases, swines just had the bad luck to be intermediates. Another thing to point out, is the amount of salmonella that can be found in just a pathway and the different types this can exist. Just a couple of weeks ago I was at the petting zoo at a pumpkin patch and they had to put on guidelines for biosecurity, like traffic flow, social distancing and more accessibility to hand wash station. I also learned that in biosecurity you have to consider every factor that can potentially have an impact in a certain situation. Finally, is very helpful to hear this information from professionals that had worked in this field and have experience in constructing biosecurity protocols.
