2021 Blood Tester School Information

Blood Tester Schools 2021 Video

The NPIP Division licenses individuals to blood test birds for Salmonella (pullorum) and Salmonella (typhoid), which also allows private testers to fill out 90 Day certificates for tested birds. This licensing enables persons to blood test their own birds, as well as other individuals' birds. Private individuals wanting to do this testing for county fairs, shows, flea markets, sales, etc. can complete our on-line blood testing schools and test only for P-T Certifications.

Commercial Blood Testing Schools are held for employees of poultry companies to enable them to blood test the commercial flocks for NPIP programs.
