Participants representing Imperial County cattle feedlots came together on April 22nd to discuss food safety at the Livestock Food Safety Workshop held at UC DREC. Organized by UCANR advisors and specialists, invited speakers presented current management practices and research related to food safety with respect to livestock and wildlife. Topics covering packing plant food safety, mitigation of pathogen shedding at the feedlot, and past food safety research initiated a productive discussion amongst participants and speakers to identify key areas of concern and potential for future research. The successful workshop set groundwork for future discussions related to this critical issue.
