Jenna oversees Ohio’s National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) and works cooperatively with state leaders such as USDA and ODA to write and implement Ohio’s Avian State Disease Response Plan for an event such as Avian Influenza.
OPA works closely with poultry producers of all sizes and can help answer any questions regarding poultry. She is happy to do a classroom visit, host virtual field trips, and help with lesson plans and any other educational materials that OPA may have.
