Wisconsin reaches a dozen avian influenza cases
Avian influenza continues to affect Wisconsin poultry producers. The Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection says the state is now up to 12 affected premises, with four of them larger-scale farms.
Last Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, four new premises were affected with two in Barron County, one in Oconto County, and one in Fond du Lac County. One of the new Barron County sites is a commercial farm with 110-thousand birds. Three of the twelve sites are in Barron County, which has several turkey producers.
