Things are returning to normal for the state’s poultry industry. The state Agriculture Department has lifted the quarantines in control zones around all five Barron County farms struck by this spring’s bird flu outbreak. “It allows all of those that are in the control zones to resume movement of product, which previously had to be done by permit only,” DATCP’s Raechelle Kline said
The farms themselves remain quarantined, until they’ve completed the cleaning and disinfection process. They will then be allowed to repopulate their flocks. There have been no new detections of Avian Influenza in Wisconsin since May 4.
