Wednesday, February 20, 2019Controlling Biofilm in Dry Environments

It is now well established that bacteria, including foodborne pathogens, predominantly grow in biofilms, their natural habitat. Biofilms are comprised of dense, complex, multi-species populations of microorganisms that are irreversibly attached to a surface or to each other, and are embedded in a self-produced extracellular polymeric matrix.

Stop Avian Influenza

We are well into the fall season, and after last week’s confirmation of H5N2 Low Pathogenic Avian Influenza in Minnesota now is a great time to assess and update your biosecurity program.

Tuesday, February 27, 2018Frozen doesn’t mean Listeria – Free

The food industry has been increasingly focused on a risk-based approach to food safety. Control of Listeria specifically, is always at the top of every list, as it poses the largest threat. “The pathogen’s recent influx in a variety of fresh, frozen and processed foods is reinforcing the importance of understanding how contamination occurs in processing plants.” (Mackin, 2018).

Whether dairy producers are raising their own calves, or contract raising for others, animal health is top priority. Healthy calves lead to lower veterinary and death loss expenses, and ensure that a viable replacement heifer is entering the herd.
