Poultry Medicine Workshops

Poultry Extension at Iowa State University is pleased to offer three separate "Poultry Medicine Workshops" to be held in Denison (Western IA), Ames (Central IA) and Central City (Eastern IA). Each is one-full-day program of lectures and a wet lab in the afternoon. The program is carried out by Dr. Mohamed El-Gazzar and Dr. Yuko Sato ISU Poultry Extension Veterinarians, in addition to other instructors with diverse poultry expertise. The purpose of the workshops is to introduce veterinarians in all kinds of veterinary practices, including small animal and mixed animal veterinarians, to poultry medicine. Noncommercial and backyard poultry owners are a growing and underserved population that require more veterinary involvement. The program is designed to provide veterinarians with the necessary knowledge, skills, and resources to encourage them to provide veterinary services for poultry clients.
