Recent cases of HPAI have been confirmed in Europe, Asia and Africa, and many poultry owners and producers are concerned about spread of the virus to their flocks. As the bird migration season is upon us, there is a heightened risk for the transportation of the avian influenza virus from one region of the world to another. It is important for the U.S. poultry industry to be prepared and take precautions to prevent outbreaks.
USPOULTRY invites producers to hear from experts during a series of four webinars on what lessons were learned from previous outbreaks and the preventive biosecurity measures needed to protect our U.S. flocks.
