CEO of Center Fresh Group talks about avian flu

Posted: Updated:

The CEO of a company hit by the avian influenza epidemic is awestruck

"You never think in your wildest dreams that this would happen and that it would be so rapid, so fast, so severe," Center Fresh Group CEO Bruce Dooyema said.

Center Fresh Group has 33 barns in Sioux County, 29 of which are infected.

The company will lose 7 million birds and several million dollars.

Dooyema says, these are the worst days in the company's history. There is no help from insurance since it doesn't cover diseases. However, the government does provide indemnity to help pick up present value.
