Speaker: Dr. Corrie Brown, DVM, PhD, DACVP, Josiah Meigs and University Distinguished Professor

There are 1 billion smallholders in the world, and these are defined as those people who depend on their few livestock for survival. Their animals are considered mobile bank accounts, and sales of meat, eggs, and milk provide necessary cash to help support periodic expenses such as school fees and medical treatments. They also supply important micronutrients for children and pregnant women, helping to ensure adequate brain development and avoid cognitive stunting. When a disease enters these smallholders’ small flocks or herds, the economic and nutritional impacts are devastating.
