Emergency Preparedness for Horses and Livestock

Postby Tracy on Thu Aug 19, 2010 10:42 am

Ever wondered what you would do with your animals in the face of a major tornado or other emergency? What supplies should you have on hand? How can you identify your animals if they get away from your land? What temporary boarding facilities are available?

These questions and others will be answered for you on Tuesday, September 28th from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at Myers Park and Event Center during the “Emergency Preparedness for Horses and Livestock” seminar. Sponsored by the Texas AgriLife Lone Star Equine Council, the event will feature Jason Lane of Homeland Security who will describe the Collin County Emergency Management Plan already in place which includes provisions for the handling and care of horses and livestock. Attendees will receive a resource list developed by Homeland Security.

Collin County Agrilife Extension Agent Rick Maxwell will then discuss determining emergency vulnerabilities and capabilities and Dr. Bailey White, D.V.M. will give attendees advice on what to have on hand in case of your own local emergency.

Please call the Extension Office at 972-548-4233 if you plan on attending. Myers Park is located on FM 166 northwest of McKinney. Refreshments will be provided and there is no cost for attending. As the residents of the Gulf Coast know, you can never be too prepared.
