Online CE: Beef Cattle Flies

Friday, July 16, 2021

Dr. Justin Talley

Oklahoma State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine announces a new online continuing education course for veterinary professionals. This course is based on Dr. Justin Talley’s Summer Seminar presentation on Saturday, June 19, 2021, held online via Zoom.

Participants will watch a video recording of the presentation and complete a final assessment. In this course attendees will gain a better understanding of insecticide resistance within certain fly pests associated with beef systems, increase awareness of non-chemical control methods that will delay insecticide resistance and be able to differentiate which flies are associated with specific pathogenic agents that cause disease in pasture cattle.

Talley is a professor in the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology at Oklahoma State University. He holds a split extension/research/teaching appointment. He earned his B.S. in Agronomy from West Texas A&M University in 2000, his M.S. in Plant, Soil and Environmental Science from West Texas A&M University in 2001, and his Ph.D. from Kansas State University in Entomology in 2008. Talley joined Oklahoma State University as an assistant professor of Entomology, was promoted to associate professor in 2012 and professor in 2017. His research focuses on veterinary entomology, principally on ticks and flies associated with livestock systems. His primary research emphasis is on pest management of arthropods, especially problems relating to the cattle and poultry industries. Talley is responsible for teaching two undergraduate and one graduate courses. His extension responsibility is the state specialist for Livestock Entomology. He develops interactive demonstration projects for livestock producers to participate in and recently received the Gerrit Cuperus Integrated Pest Management Award for exemplary work in pest management of a major cattle pest through the OSU Cooperative Extension Service.  

Registration Fee:  $25

Time Requirements: Approximately 1 hour. This course can be completed at participants’ own pace. If you attended this session at Summer Seminar, do not duplicate. No CE credit for course duplication.
