BIRD FLU UPDATE

BIRD FLU LATEST

NEW GOVERNMENT RULES COME INTO FORCE

FROM MONDAY 29th NOVEMBER

POULTRY KEEPERS MUST NOW DO THE FOLLOWING

House or net all poultry and captive birds to keep them separate from wild birds.

Cleanse and disinfect clothing, footwear, equipment, and vehicles before and after contact with poultry and captive birds – if practical, use disposable protective clothing.

Reduce the movement of people, vehicles, or equipment to and from areas where poultry and captive birds are kept, to minimise contamination from manure, slurry, and other products, and use effective vermin control.

Thoroughly cleanse and disinfect housing on a continuous basis.

Keep fresh disinfectant at the right concentration at all farm and poultry housing entry and exit points.

Minimise direct and indirect contact between poultry and captive birds and wild birds, including making sure all feed and water is not accessible to wild birds.
