H5N1 in Iowa dairy herds reaches 8 cases

Another case of H5N1 Influenza A has been confirmed in an Iowa dairy herd.

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship says the most recent detection occurred in dairy cattle in Sioux County. It’s the eighth detection of the virus within the state’s dairy herds.

State Ag Secretary Mike Naig says supportive care can help dairy cattle recover with little to no mortality association with the disease.

Suspected cases can be reported to the agency at 515-281-5305.
