Your efforts are helping advance knowledge in the livestock production industry; thus helping to protect our nation’s critical infrastructure and national economy.

Specifically, we appreciate your assistance to modernize the 10-year-old Carcass Management Online Training Modules to help operators and responders make the best choices to control and contain disease by conducting carcass management operations in a timely, safe, biosecure, aesthetically acceptable, and environmentally responsible manner.

It has been a pleasure working with you, and we want to acknowledge and thank you for the time, dedication and expertise you have provided this program. These efforts could not have been accomplished without your support.

We hope to work with you again, in the future.
