Deadly Avian Influenza Warning from USDA

ATTENTION POULTRY OWNERS!!   This comes from our State Veterinarian, Dr. Rod Hall: “The USDA has confirmed a case of the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza in a wild duck in Alaska. With the fall southward migration pending there is the possibility that there could transmission from the migratory waterfowl to backyard or commercial flocks of domestic poultry.” They want us to alert all those involved in poultry in any way to increase their biosecurity measures to prevent another horrible epidemic as we experienced a year and a half ago. See the below link for the official USDA report for further information:
