Ninth case of HPAI detected in Nebraska, first since April

A case of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza has been detected in Nebraska.

USDA’s Animal and Health Inspection Service (APHIS) and the Nebraska Department of Agriculture says a backyard flock in Dawes County has tested positive. A 6.2-mile surveillance zone will be established around the flock.   

State Veterinarian Dr. Roger Dudley says the flock has been depopulated and disposed of and poultry producers in the surveillance area should report signs and symptoms of HPAI to NDA immediately.

This is the state’s ninth case of HPAI and the first since April.
