Official Ban Lifted on Poultry Shows, Fairs and Exhibitions

As of January 1, 2016, the Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) has officially lifted the ban on poultry shows, fairs and exhibitions that was put in place to prevent the spread of highly pathogenic H5N2 avian influenza (HP AI) last year.

This is very exciting news for many of you and we will all be happy to see the poultry back in the barns this year. 2015 was also a very good educational tool on learning more about biosecurity measures with poultry and otherlivestock. Please review more in the document that was distributed to the NEBR4H listserv on January 8 from the Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA).
