    At least 60 chickens are dying every day in each poultry farm in
    Sherpur. There are about 3000 small and big poultry farms in the
    district having 500 to 3000 birds in each farm.


    Various diseases have broken out in an epidemic form in the poultry
    farms due to low temperature.

    As a result, the poultry industry in the district faces the threat of
    closure. Blockade programme of grand alliance [??] has aggravated the
    situation. As a result, poultry owners have become frustrated.

    Some poultry firm owners yesterday claimed that the prices of chicken
    fell considerably while prices of poultry feed increased greatly in
    the local markets in last few days.

    [The newswire attributes the significant mortality, apparently
    observed in many holdings in the affected district, to the
    combination of low temperatures and "various diseases." Temperatures
    are a measurable parameter (see map, which includes also current
    meteorological data in Sherpur, at
    <http://www.fallingrain.com/world/BG/81/Sherpur.html>), while the
    involvement of "diseases" is in need of substantiation. Information
    on the prevailing poultry health, including suspected or confirmed
    diseases, infectious or otherwise, is requested. - Mod.AS]
