HPAI H5N1 Alert


On April 24, USDA announced a Federal Order as part of its ongoing efforts to protect the U.S. livestock industry from the threat posed by highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI or H5N1) in dairy cattle. The Federal Order requires mandatory testing prior to the interstate movement of lactating dairy cattle and mandatory reporting of positive influenza A test results in livestock. United Producers is sharing the following resources to keep our cooperative members informed about the ongoing situation.
