The Department of Agricultural Economics will host a luncheon seminar on animal health regulations from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 11, at the K-State Olathe Campus.

The seminar, the second in the Animal Health Corridor Lecture Series, will address USDA regulations for the animal health industry.

Speakers will include Dr. Byron Rippke, director of policy, evaluation and licensing for the USDA APHIS’ Center for Veterinary Biologics, and Dr. Carol Rinehart, director of poultry and cattle vaccines research and development for CEVA Biomune.

“Regulatory compliance is critical in our current environment,” said Kara Ross, research assistant professor and program leader. “Animal health industry professionals have continually expressed the need to have more access to expertise and resources regarding regulatory affairs.”

The newly formed Animal Health Supply Chain Program helps animal health organizations improve credibility through regulatory compliance. As a result, companies are able to increase competitiveness and create more job opportunities, Ross said.

Ticket information is available online at ageconomics.ksu.edu under Events. RSVP by Oct. 3. Tickets include lunch.

For more information, contact Dr. Kara Ross at (785) 532-3536 or kross@agecon.ksu.edu.
