A virtual pullorum tester training seminar will be presented via Zoom on April 13, 2021, from 6-7:30 p.m. by DATCP's Division of Animal Health.
This seminar is for people who would like to become a certified pullorum tester for poultry in Wisconsin. Certified testers can test their own or others' poultry so that flocks can qualify for the National Poultry Improvement Program (NPIP), Wisconsin Tested Flock Program, or for individual testing requirements. Certified testers must be at least 18 years old, and they must adhere to NPIP and Wisconsin Tested Flock program standards. They do not need to be veterinarians or veterinary technicians. The seminar will explain the requirements for the poultry testing programs and demonstrate how to test for poultry diseases ̶ salmonella pullorum and mycoplasma gallisepticum.
Pre-registration is required. Please contact Margie Proost by April 8, 2021, to register at (608) 224-4877 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. After you have registered, you will be emailed the Zoom link to attend the training.
There is a $25 fee for the five-year certification. A form will be supplied that must be mailed with your payment within two weeks after attending the seminar.
