Everett Griner talks about Avian Flu spreading overseas in today’s Agri View.
There hasn’t been much in the news recently about Avian Flu but it is out there. I should say it is over there because it has not been found in America yet. It is mostly in Asian and European countries. Japan and South Korea in the Pacific region have been struggling with commercial poultry production and wild birds. Officials in the Netherlands, Germany and the United Kingdom have had their problems too. My report indicated that the problem has been confirmed in chickens, ducks, turkeys and wild birds of several kind. They are dealing with more than one kind. There is HPIA and H5N8. Both are serious and difficult to deal with. So far North America has been lucky. But, keep your fingers crossed. It could happen yet.
That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner.
