Mil­lions culled in bird flu scare

The Poultry Bulletin - - CONTENTS -

Amur Broiler, one of the largest poul­try pro­duc­ers in eastern Rus­sia, has culled more than 1 mil­lion broil­ers in the last seven weeks due to the pres­ence of bird flu. This ac­tion fol­lowed lab­o­ra­tory in­spec­tion of sam­ples taken from dead poul­try, which showed the pos­si­ble pres­ence of highly path­o­genic avian in­fluenza.

De­spite the in­ci­dent, Amur’s broiler par­ent flock, which is lo­cated separately, re­mains un­af­fected by the dis­ease.

The ar­ti­cles above have all been com­piled by the Ed­i­tor and do not nec­es­sar­ily rep­re­sent the views, opin­ions or po­si­tions of SAPA.
