All Minnesota Poultry Farms Released From Quarantine
St Paul, MN (KROC AM News) - Good news on the bird flu front.
The Minnesota Board of Animal Health says the quarantine has now been lifted at all poultry farms in the state that were impacted by the outbreak that appeared in early spring. This means that poultry and poultry products are no longer restricted by additional testing and movement requirements. The board says 43 farms have restocking agreements in place and at least 31 already have birds back in their barns. The carcass disposal process has been completed at all but one farm.
The lifting of the quarantine means all Minnesota poultry and poultry products from non-infected farms are no longer restricted by additional testing and movement requirements.
The Board says it continues to work with the poultry industry and other government agencies to prepare for the possibility of a return of the virus when the weather turns cool.
