Avian influenza roadshows - October 2017

Defra Bird Flu Sign_25549

The Poultry Health and Welfare Group has organised a third series of avian influenza roadshows for British poultry producers.

Twelve events take place across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. Roadshows are free to attend but registration is vital.

Speakers will include local APHA representatives, veterinary experts,  APHA licensing team representatives and the Poultry Club of GB.

Following a series of AI outbreaks during winter 2017/18, the PHWG identified a need to share lessons learned by the industry and government with producers.

This year we are also extending the invitation to those who keep poultry on a smaller scale, in order to ensure the sector as a whole is up-to-date on current disease threats and the requirement for stringent biosecurity protocols during AI outbreaks.

Roadshows  run from 10am to 3pm with a free lunch included (the roadshow on 4 October at the Metropole Hotel in Llandrindod Wells will take place in the evening).
