Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza continues to affect backyard poultry flocks in Missouri. There have been two new cases reported in December: a mixed flock in Harrison County and a chicken flock in Dade County. Ag Director Chris Chinn says there’s outreach and education happening in those areas of the state.
“Wild waterfowl are really the carriers of this as they are in their migration season.”
Chinn encourages poultry owners to monitor their flocks.
