Avian Flu

Recent outbreaks of Avian Flu in Europe and the UK has meant that poultry farmers should be extremely vigilant to ensure that they step up their bio-security procedures. All poultry farmers should ensure that protective measures are taken by themselves and any visitors to their farms. They should also ensure their chlorination systems are operating in accordance with the Department of Agriculture’s guidelines.
