Roy Lee Lindsey on Biosecurity After the Livestock ShowMon, 16 Mar 2020 13:40:48 CDT
The Oklahoma Pork Council has created a series of videos that instruct livestock showers on Biosecurity after the show. The Videos's cover how to isolate any animals that return home, properly clean and disinfect equipment, care for leftover feed, and also cover how to clean their truck and trailer.
Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director, Ron Hays spoke with Roy Lee Lindsey from OkPork who says its important to know when you bring animals together you run the risk of spreading disease. He says these videos are an easy way to follow the information, and to share the information with others.
Lindsey says there is currently some heightened attention and people are paying closer attention to their animals, "I think there is a greater focus, and attention on it. Its a shame we need events like last year, and what is going on elsewhere in the world for us to pay attention to what I think are those really important details. These things draw attention to what is important and I'm hoping that our exhibitors and their parents, and our teachers will all take this to heart, and will follow these things as we head home."
