  • Working with the partnering state and federal agencies to ensure an effective/efficient emergency response in food and agriculture.
  • Maintaining a statewide Livestock Emergency Disease Response System (LEDRS), comprised of private, state and federal practitioners, university extension educators, and government regulatory staff.
