Canada Depopulates 400,000 Commercial Birds During September and October


According to postings by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, 400,000 birds of diverse commercial types were depopulated as a result of seventeen cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza.  Five farms with a total of 168,000 turkeys were affected together with 19,000 turkey breeder flocks on two farms.  Two outbreaks on commercial egg production farms totaling 17,250 birds were recorded.  Approximately 185,000 birds identified as commercial poultry but not assigned to a specific type were depleted on five farms.  The bird numbers among the farms ranged from 17,000 to 47,000.


Outbreaks are ongoing with three cases reported during the first week of November.
