Certified testers can test their own or others' poultry so that flocks can qualify for the National Poultry Improvement Program, Wisconsin Tested Flock Program, or individual testing requirements. These testing programs allow owners to move birds for fairs, exhibits, and sales. Certified testers must be at least 18 years old, and adhere to NPIP and Wisconsin Tested Flock program standards. The seminar will explain the requirements for the poultry testing programs and demonstrate how to test for poultry diseases such as salmonella pullorum and mycoplasma gallisepticum.
Please contact Margie Proost by email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to become a certified pullorum tester in Wisconsin. This training is being offered virtually.
