Kloubec’s Continued Emphasis on Koi Health

Published on August 26, 2017

On Aug. 9, 2017, Kloubec Koi Farm hosted the Iowa State University and USDA APHIS training course, Fin Fish: Foreign and Emerging Diseases. Twenty-two veterinarians from across the country and Canada participated in the three-day training program. As part of the curriculum, a fictitious scenario of an unidentified outbreak was portrayed by the ISU and Kloubec Koi Farm staff. The participants learned proper procedures to conduct and lead a FAD investigation when a fin fish pathogen is suspected. The mock investigation provided hands-on training for accurate collection and handling of fin fish diagnostic specimens for laboratory submission, learning skills for conducting a farm visit and the accepted method for interviewing a fin fish producer or farmer. 

 Myron Kloubec said, “This was an excellent opportunity to understand their protocols, and most importantly, for the vets to understand the side of the producer, hopefully opening a new dialog between USDA and APHIS by keeping the lines of communication open for the entire industry.”
