    GUADALAJARA, JALISCO (25/ENE/2013.) - Security measures against bird flu in Jalisco be followed to the letter and should not get off their guard, otherwise there is a risk of backlash as happened at a farm in the municipality Encarnaci?n de D?az Jalisco, where "you had a lax stance on vaccination of birds."

    In this regard, the National Health and Food Safety (Senasica), has not yet ruled on the outbreak of influenza in the farm of Encarnacion de Diaz, despite request for information.

    Molina De Anda said that the case of regrowth in Encarnacion de Diaz, as the emergence of bird flu at the beginning of the year in Aguascalientes, stop reading the AH7N3 virus is present and under no circumstances should mitigate biosecurity measures in poultry, especially since the conditions of cold and this winter gales are risk factors, as they facilitate the spread of the virus.

    While in the case of egg processing has been increasing sales to several destinations, among which stands out the Japanese market.

    He noted that to the extent that inventory restocking birds have its effect in increasing the supply of eggs, it will resume exports.


    The expectation of processed egg exports last year was 800 thousand tons.
    The national egg production is 2 million tons. Jalisco contributes 55 percent.
