HIGH PATH AVIAN INFLUENZA DETECTED IN UNITED STATES

The recent detection of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in a Tennessee farm shows that HPAI still poses a great risk to Pennsylvania’s poultry population. The department is closely monitoring the situation and Pennsylvania’s flocks. But the first line of defense is proper biosecurity protocol on your own operation. Is your flock registered with the Department of Agriculture? Do you have a flock plan in place? Do you follow best biosecurity protocols? Review this information and protect your poultry from harm.
