Archived: 2016 Poultry Medicine Workshops

Veterinary Extension at The Ohio State University is pleased to offer three separate "Poultry Medicine Workshops" to be held in the Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati metropolitan areas. Each one-day program consists of lecture followed by a wet lab in the afternoon.  The program is coordinated by Dr. Mohamed El-Gazzar, OSU Poultry Extension Veterinarian, with instructors consisting of various poultry experts. The purpose is to introduce veterinary practitioners in small animal and mixed animal practice to poultry medicine. The goal is to provide veterinarians with the necessary knowledge and skills to accept poultry clients. Noncommercial and urban backyard poultry producers are a growing and underserved population that will require more veterinary involvement, especially when the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) takes effect in 2017.
