The folks at APHIS announced a few days ago the publication of a Bird Biosecurity Calendar for 2006:
The U.S. Department of Agricultureâ€™s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service today announced the availability of an informative bilingual calendar designed to help bird owners protect their birds from diseases such as exotic Newcastle disease (END) and avian influenza (AI).
The FREE calendar, entitled 2006 Backyard Biosecurity: Keeping Your Poultry Healthy, is an essential tool for bird owners to ensure the prevention of infectious poultry and bird diseases. It provides information on the warning signs for spotting illness and how to report sick birds, as well as six easy-to-follow steps for practicing backyard biosecurity.
This is an important issue to raise awareness about…but a calendar?
In any case, if you’d like to order a free calendar, send an e-mail with your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
