June 24th Webinar
The landscape of rights and responsibilities around keeping your farm and livestock secure from unexpected visitors is changing. While there is a call for staying home now, it is the perfect time to prepare. Groups may have had some extra time to plan and coordinate, and if it affects your business you should be ready too! During this one-hour webinar we plan to explore everything from knowing your rights, and who to call. When something unexpected happens, it’s important to know the next steps.
