Roseau & Otter Tail County Now reporting H5N2
Although there have been no new stakeholder’s announcements posted on the APHIS website since Tuesday, today four more Minnesota farms were added to the list of commercial poultry producers reporting H5N2 . The two new counties were – noticeably – further north in the state than had previously been detected.
It also appears that a new county in South Dakota (Roberts) has been put on the APHIS tracking list in the past 24 hours, although I’ve found no formal announcement.
The Minnesota Board of Animal Health adds Otter Tail and Roseau Counties to today’s list (below), and notes Kandiyohi County’s 5th farm to be infected and Stearns County’s 6th.
In addition to the dozens of commercial farms, and captive wild birds affected by the virus, the USDA’s National Veterinary Services Laboratories has a list with (as of 4/15/15) 55 infected wild birds sampled from more than 10 states.
