The North American Manure Expo is returning to Pennsylvania and promises to provide “Manure than you can Handle.”
The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture encourages the poultry industry to practice biosecurity measures and stresses the need for vigilance and preparedness in wake of avian flu outbreak. The Department is actively working with industry and government agencies following confirmed positive tests in other states.
Since December 2014, USDA has confirmed several cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5 in the Pacific, Central, and Mississippi flyways (migratory bird paths). The disease has been found in wild birds, as well as in a few backyard and commercial poultry flocks. Here is information to help you be better informed and advise bird owners, especially about biosecurity, should the need arise.
The North American Manure Expo event will be in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania on July 14th and 15th. One new promotional twist for the Manure Expo is a T-shirt contest that is just plain fun.
