HOLTVILLE — The Desert Research and Extension Center here will be the site for the first of two workshops intended to bring the livestock and produce communities together to discuss prevention of foodborne illness outbreaks.

The California Department of Food and Agriculture is partnering with the University of California and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to put the Good Ag Neighbors workshops together. They are designed for fruit and vegetable growers, livestock owners, and others interested in learning about how produce safety and livestock management practices can work jointly to promote food safety.
