With the change of the seasons, as well as the past year’s outbreak of HPAI in poultry, USDA APHIS encourages all partner organizations to support outreach efforts to poultry growers to stress the importance of biosecurity to make sure they are doing everything possible to keep their birds healthy and reduce the risk of spreading disease. Here are posts, graphics, and articles to use on your websites and social media platforms.
In addition, USDA APHIS is hosting a free webinar on Thursday, September 22, at 2:30pm ET about navigating avian influenza. Learn from USDA and other experts on steps to take and what to expect during a bird flu outbreak. Information about the webinar, including social media posts, are included here.
The Defend the Flock public education program provides checklists, videos, webinars, and educational resources to help poultry growers. Featured outreach materials and social media posts are provided here for you to use at your discretion. High-definition versions of the images below are available upon request.
All materials in the Defend the Flock Resource Center are free and available 24/7 at www.bit.ly/DefendtheFlock-Resources2022. Checklists corresponding to each of the NPIP principles are available in Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. Most of the other materials are also available in Spanish.
We encourage you to share these resources with colleagues, stakeholders, and constituents. Should you have questions or need additional materials, please contact me.
Thank you for your support. Let’s keep our poultry healthy together!
Outreach Coordinator, Defend the Flock
