southernfarmnetwork1Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler sits down each week with the Southern Farm Network’s Rhonda Garrison to discuss “Today’s Topic.”

NCDA&CSĀ  Veterinary laboratories have been undergoing some major upgrades in the past five years, with the latest upgrades slated to be complete by the end of this month. This will add a second Bio-Security Level 3 laboratory to an existing BSL-3 lab at the Rollins Veterinary Disease Diagnostic Laboratory in Raleigh. These fully contained laboratories allow for testing of certain diseases within a secure setting. Commissioner Troxler explains why this is not only important for animal health, but human health as well. Listen in as they discuss Today’s Topic.
