  • Federal and state government stakeholders

  • Veterinarians

  • Academic researchers

  • Extension educators

  • Food and agriculture emergency managers

  • Public health managers

  • Food animal processors

  • Students conducting graduate research in carcass disposal, disinfection, and depopulation

  • Researchers from academic or other institutions

  • Anyone interested in research and education to manage mortalities for disasters and high consequence livestock disease
