Defend the Flock - Resources and Links

In every state, there are issues or concerns that are more prevalent than in other locations. To help our state partners, APHIS developed a series of template factsheets that the state animal health officials can complete/customize for their needs and use when giving biosecurity training to commercial producers.

These are word document templates and can be adjusted to fit your needs.
