Bird flu roadshows to prepare for future outbreaks

The Poultry Health and Welfare Group (PHWG) is organising a series of roadshows to share lessons learnt from last winter’s bird flu outbreaks.

If you are a commercial poultry producer or a non-commercial poultry keeper, join us at one of the twelve roadshows taking place across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales between 4-26 October.

Following a series of bird flu outbreaks during the winter 2016/17, these roadshows offer a great opportunity for the industry to share best practices and lessons learnt with small-scale poultry producers and backyard poultry keepers up and down the country.

This year, the roadshows will share lessons learnt and discuss the ways in which the spread of the infection during an outbreak can be minimised.  The roadshows will also bring you up-to-date on the disease threats while highlighting the importance of maintaining effective biosecurity throughout the year to avoid any incursion of potential infection.

Speakers will include local Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) veterinarians, licensing team officials, private veterinary practices and other experts from the sector.

The roadshows are free to attend, with lunch included. If you are planning to attend please register in advance. The British Poultry Council will be chairing the roadshows in Northern Ireland and Scotland.
