Total cases of avian flu in Iowa expected to reach 28

Posted: Updated:

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship is testing three more probable cases of avian influenza.

If the virus is confirmed at these farms, the number of cases will be up to 28.

The tests are being conducted at two Buena Vista County turkey farms and one Sioux County commercial laying operation.

State officials are quarantining the infected birds. Once the virus is confirmed the birds will be euthanized to prevent the spread of the disease.
