Minnesota: H5N2 in turkeys

2 November, 2018

The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has identified another case of low-pathogenic H5N2 avian influenza in turkeys (13 week old hens). H5N2 was found by routine surveillance testing in a turkey flock in Stearns County. The farm will be allowed to market the turkeys once the birds test negative for the disease.
A similar case of the virus was detected last month in a commercial turkey flock in Kandiyohi County.
