May 21, 2024

In this webinar, ASI Animal Health Committee Co-Chair, Dr. Jim Logan hosted Dr. Stephanie Ringler (USDA APHIS) as she discussed options to meet the USDA sheep and goat identification requirements for the National Scrapie Eradication Program. Dr. Ringler is a veterinary medical officer (VMO) for the National Sheep and Goat team with USDA APHIS Veterinary Services. In addition to working for USDA, she owns and operates a small ruminant veterinary practice in western Pennsylvania where she educates, trains, and provides medical treatment to sheep and goat owners in the community. In January 2023, Dr. Ringler was recognized by the American Association of Small Ruminant Practitioners as their 2023 Emerging Leader which has allowed her to create biosecurity materials that can be used by small ruminant veterinarians around the country. A question-and-answer session followed the presentation.

This webinar is made possible with funding support from theĀ American Sheep Industry Association and a Cooperative Agreement from the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).
