A new tool is available to help you evaluate whether your dairy is at increased risk for a Salmonella outbreak.

The short self-assessment — found at www.SalmonellaRisk.com/Assessment — was created by Pfizer Animal Health with contributions from industry veterinarians.

During the assessment, you answer questions about on-farm hygiene, accessibility and animal health practices. Once completed, the tool provides a personalized Salmonella reduction plan that can be printed or e-mailed to your herd veterinarian. Together, you and your veterinarian can use the plan to review current protocols and management practices, and establish ways to help reduce risk and build immunity to Salmonella.
