Veterinary - Beekeeper Relations: Making the Most of a Sticky Situation 

 

With the new Veterinary Feed Directives in place, certain antibiotics that were once commonly available to food producers are no longer sold over the counter and require a prescription or feed directive issued by a veterinarian. These laws include antibiotics commonly used by beekeepers to treat the bacterial diseases American Foulbrood and European Foulbrood. Our speakers will provide a brief introduction to the beekeeping business and diseases veterinarians might encounter. Join colleagues and experts for a discussion on how veterinarians can best relate to beekeepers and what to expect when confronted with these new challenges.


Dinner and beverages will be provided!
