As part of the UCCE's commitment to helping build a more resilient community we are collaborating with UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and local veterinarians to provide information and resources regarding animal health and husbandry. One of the most recognized challenges faced by small-scale livestock producers is the lack of access to technical information and veterinary oversight. 

The growing consumer interest in local food production and sustainability, and increased preference for fresh, local and organic products in the last years has been linked to an increase the number of small-scale farms.

Beginning Jan. 2017 all anti-microbials that are medically important and administered in feed or water will require a prescription from a veterinarian with a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship.

In CA, beginning in Jan.1, 2018, SB 27, all anti-microbials over-the-counter will need a prescription. This workshop will provide information regarding animal health and husbandry, antibiotic resistance and use in small-scale livestock farms. 

Hear from experts with UC Cooperative Extension, UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, and Vet Clinics.

Learn best practices for animal health and husbandry, antibiotic resistance and use.

Connect with other small-scale livestock and poultry producers in the region.

This workshop will cover:

  • Antibiotic resistance and proper use of anti-microbials on small-scale livestock and poultry operations
  • Prescriptions now required for anti-microbials administered to animals
  • Effects of fire on livestock and poultry
