Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries' Department of Animal
Health and Production has invited 40 commercial poultry farmers to a
workshop in Siem Reap. The workshop, held today, aims to encourage
farmers to adopt simple and practical bio-security measures to prevent
the spread of avian influenza. Dr Teresa Cereno, technical adviser to
the FAO Avian Influenza Control and Prevention Program said, "Improving
widespread adoption of good bio-security practices remains a crucial
challenge in prevention of avian influenza in poultry and humans."
