A message from the Commissioner

“Since we first were notified about a potential case of avian influenza on a Kentucky premise, our staff has worked diligently to confirm suspected cases and inform our industry partners and the public. The Kentucky Department of Agriculture is working closely with animal health officials at both the federal and state government to contain these incidents of this deadly virus to our poultry livestock.”

“Protecting the health of livestock and poultry in the commonwealth is a top priority of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. We encourage everyone to help us continue our containment work, while at the same time doing everything possible to keep their own birds healthy.”
