US Agency Releases Report on HPAI

22nd June 2015

As reported by United Egg Producers’ United Voices Newsletter, the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has released an epidemiology report outlining its initial findings through June 5 about how HPAI was likely entering new premises during this period of time. The report provides preliminary case series reports on HPAI-infected turkey farms in five states (IA, MN, ND, SD & WI). After conducting investigations on over 80 commercial poultry farms, APHIS analysis indicates that there are likely several ways the virus could be transmitted, including lapses in biosecurity practices and environmental factors. APHIS cannot, however, associate HPAI transmission with one factor or group of factors in a statistically significant way at this time, and they will continue to update this report regularly as more analyses are completed.
