K-State National Agricultural Biosecurity Center director speaker at AAAS Biosecurity Symposium

MANHATTAN, KAN. -- David R. Franz, director of Kansas State University's National Agricultural Biosecurity Center, gave a presentation on some of the vulnerabilities and threats to the nation's livestock industry at a symposium on agricultural biosecurity, a part of the annual meeting of the American Academy for the Advancement of Science, Feb. 15-19, in San Francisco.

Franz made his presentation, "Biosecurity: Protecting Our Livestock Industry," Feb. 18.

Because animal populations are now more concentrated than ever before and are transported more widely, even internationally, few technical barriers exist to prevent the intentional introduction of highly infectious and contagious biological agents that could cause significant economic damage to the livestock industry, according to Franz.

"Protecting our herds and flocks from intentional disease is at once more difficult and it requires a different set of tools than we have used in our ongoing struggle with natural disease," he said.
