A couple of upcoming events offer veterinarians a chance to learn about the USDA’s new animal disease traceability (ADT) rules and the veterinarian’s role in compliance. On July 16 at 1:00 Eastern time, GlobalVetLINK will conduct a webinar on ADT with Dr. Valarie Ragan, who served as assistant deputy administrator at APHIS Veterinary Services.

On August 6 and 7, USAHA and NIAA will conduct a joint forum on ADT in Denver. The forum immediately precedes the NCBA summer conference, so attendance could be convenient if you plan to be in Denver that week.
