Avian Influenza Roadshows 2017


The Poultry Health and Welfare Group (PHWG) organised a series of AI roadshows across the UK throughout October, inviting poultry keepers to attend and hear from a variation of speakers. We are pleased to say that over 800 people attended across 12 events and for the first time backyard keepers and small holders also contributed to the roadshows.

As promised to delegates attending the roadshows a selection of the presentations are now available below. We hope that the presentations also provide a useful reference to those who were unable to attend a roadshow this year:

PHWG AI roadshow - York - 17 October 2017 Presentations

Representatives from the Poultry Club of GB (PCGB) attended a selection of the roadshows and were able to give an insight into their membership. The PCGB affiliate 60 breed clubs and have been increasingly engaging with their members in order to share key messages on biosecurity and updates on disease outbreaks. Two of the council members from the PCGB also meet regularly with DEFRA and alongside the NFU were involved with designing a poster aimed at raising awareness of Avian Influenza amongst backyard keepers.

Please download the joint industry and DEFRA poster here and distribute as appropriate in your local area.

If you would like to provide any feedback regarding the AI roadshows please send it to: TkZVUG91bHRyeUBuZnUub3JnLnVr

The PHWG is made up of the following organisations:
