Livestock production undergoing rapid structural change
The seminar will examine the risk of highly contagious animal diseases spreading and how the structural change affects this risk. More information will be presented on the current and future financial risks posed by animal diseases. Finally, the seminar will discuss protection of farms against contagious animal diseases.
The seminar is organised on the basis of a research project conducted jointly by Evira and MTT Agrifood Research Finland and funded by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.
