HPAI in a commercial chicken operation in Wisconsin

14 March, 2022

State animal health officials have quarantined the property in southern Wisconsin's Jefferson County, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) west of Milwaukee. 2,760,000 chickens will be destroyed.
All the US outbreaks involve the Eurasian H5N1 strain that has led to large poultry losses in other parts of the world.
