An online workshop is being held on the lessons learnt from last year’s avian influenza (AI) season on 13 September. It will be hosted by the Veterinary Technical Group of the UK Poultry Health and Welfare Group and will update the industry on ‘forecasting’ future risk of avian influenza breaks.
Some within the industry believe suggests that outbreaks as severe as the last AI season may become more regular.
The industry and government have made progress in dealing with AI outbreaks in recent years, both in terms of communication, disease management and reducing spread within the industry, the workshop will explore any weak links found in cases of primary introduction of AI into poultry flocks.
