Millions culled in bird flu scare
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.
