As bird flu wanes, poultry exhibitions on track to resume for county fairs


Iowa Capital Dispatch: It’s been nearly a month since the last confirmed case of highly transmissible avian influenza in Iowa, which means bird exhibitions are about to resume. The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship halted the exhibitions in March to help prevent the spread of the virus, with the provision that those showings could resume 30 days after the state’s final virus confirmation. The last detection of the virus in Iowa was in a backyard flock of 46 birds in Bremer County on May 2.
