DOAG: Upcoming Agricultural Events

Upcoming Agricultural Events and Programs

Artisan/Farmstead Cheesemaker Food Safety Workshop
June 6, 2014, 8am-6pm, UConn, WB Young Bldg; $49/person to attend. 

With the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act, HACCP-based food safety plans and related pre-requisite programs will become a regulatory requirement. Proactive implementation of a risk reduction program now will better prepare producers for forthcoming regulation. The main focal points of this class include the discussion of bacteriostatic and bactericidal control points in the manufacture of cheese, validating and verifying the efficacy of said preventative controls, environmental pathogen control and monitoring as well as raw ingredient and product pathogen testing.  To register:
