With three cases of Avian Influenza (AI) in the UK over the past nine months, AI is the single biggest threat to the UK and global poultry industry. The UK Poultry Health and Welfare Group (PHWG) will be holding several informative events across Great Britain and Northern Ireland, to help poultry farmers be prepared in the event of an outbreak.
The topics covered will be areas such as biosecurity, early reporting of disease, Government compensation, requirements of secondary cleaning and disinfection to restocking and a return to country freedom from AI, as well as contingency planning for exotic notifiable disease outbreak on farm and consequential losses incurred as a direct/indirect result of an outbreak.
