    Bird flu detected on a poultry farm in Kamperveen

    At a duck farm at Leidijk in Kamperveen, bird flu was detected this morning. This confirms spokeswoman Hennie de Haan of the Dutch Trade Union Poultry Farmers. "This is horrible news. We were just hoping to get rid of it. "

    The Ministry of Agriculture does not want to confirm the news yet and will receive more information later in the afternoon. According to the website Boerderij.nl is a company that has already been hit twice by the bird flu. That happened in 2014 and 2016. The owners do not want to react yet, they let us know by telephone.

    The Dutch Trade Union Poultry Farmers has been hit hard. ,, I got the news this morning. Usually this is the period that the wild birds fly away and that the avian flu danger therefore differs. That is why this new case comes hard, "De Haan laments. "With two cases, in Groningen and Biddinghuizen, we seemed to be reasonably gracious. But unfortunately ... "She suspects that this is the variant that is very bad for the animals, the highly pathogenic avian flu. ,, But that has not been confirmed yet. "

    De Haan explains what happens in a general sense after an infection. "In addition to the animals of the affected poultry farmer, the animals from farms are usually disposed of in a radius of one kilometer. Within a radius of 3 kilometers, all animals are screened, by means of blood tests. And a transport ban is announced in a radius of about 10 kilometers. That would mean a new blow for many poultry farmers. Now it is hoped that it will stay with this one, new case. In any case, the poultry farmers keep a close eye on their animals. "
