Norovirus is a highly contagious virus. Those who contract this nasty bug may experience gastroenteritis, inflammation of the stomach and intestines. This leads to diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain.

It only takes a very small amount of the norovirus particles to make you sick and it can spread easily in enclosed places such as day care centers. This training is designed to teach all child care providers on the importance of the proper way to clean up bodily fluids to avoid spreading disease. Our next training will be April 6, 2017 in Central City.

Effective January 1, 2017, all livestock producers that use antibiotic medicated feeds to prevent, treat or control animal health issues will be required to get a written order or Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) from a Veterinarian to purchase and feed these feeds.  The regulation will only affect antibiotics administered in feed or water for livestock.

Antibiotics are important to both human medicine and animal health, to reduce the risk of antibiotic resistance in both areas; producer must follow the FDA Approved Labels.  These labels determine what animal health issues can be treated with that specific antibiotic, dosage and proper administration.
