OSU Honey Bee Lab Helps Veterinarians

October 31st, 2019

Honey bees are classified as livestock/food-producing animals by the federal government because products from apiculture enter the human food chain. In 2017 the USDA began requiring veterinary oversight of antibiotics given to food animals, including bees. That means beekeepers need to get prescriptions from veterinarians, while many veterinarians know little or nothing about bees.

The OSU Honey Bee Lab is coming to the rescue! The Willamette Valley Veterinary Medical Association has arranged for scientists from the lab to present a CE class to educate veterinarians and veterinary technicians in the basics of bee medicine.

The free class will be in Magruder Hall on the OSU campus:
Date: Tuesday, November 12
Time: 7:00 pm (appetizers and cash bar open at 6:15 pm)
Location: 300 SW 30th Street, Corvallis 97331
