CWD and Whitetail Deer Health and Management

October 3 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$35

Chronic wasting disease is a fatal neurological disease affecting members of the deer family. In the realm of diseases, CWD is unique in that the disease agent is a non-living deformed protein called a prion instead of a living organism such as a bacteria, virus, or fungus. Due to its highly infectious and fatal nature, there is concern for a decline in deer populations in Texas, and in fact, population declines are occurring in areas across the country.

We will cover:

• The traits of CWD

• The history and status of CWD

• How CWD is transmitted

• Different strategies for managing CWD

 

This webinar will offer 1 GEN CEU for pesticide applicators in Texas.
