    Kansas agriculture secretary confirms state’s 15th case of deadly avian influenza since Dec. 1
    Preventing spread of pathogen a challenge, especially in backyard poultry flocks
    By: Tim Carpenter - January 22, 2024 1:31 pm

    TOPEKA — The Kansas Department of Agriculture confirmed Monday the 15th case of avian influenza since Dec. 1 amid a national outbreak that began in 2022 and spread to all but three states and more than 450 commercial flocks across the country.

    Agriculture Secretary Mike Beam said proliferation of the pathogen was concentrated in Kansas at egg-laying facilities in McPherson and Rice counties and in gamebird facilities in Mitchell County. The most recent case in Kansas was identified Friday, Beam said.

    Unlike an outbreak in 2015 that was driven by farm-to-farm transmission, he said, this round of avian flu appeared to be transmitted primarily by wild birds interacting with flocks. In most cases, entire commercial and backyard flocks at an infected location must be euthanized...

    Avian Influenza

    Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) has continued to be detected in new locations nationwide, including new counties in Kansas. As we have noted throughout the past year, this viral disease appears to be spread by the migration of wild birds which has Kansas’ domestic birds at risk once again. Poultry producers should remain vigilant, reviewing their biosecurity activities to protect the health of their birds.

    We encourage poultry owners to monitor their flocks. If you have birds showing symptoms of HPAI (see list of symptoms below), contact your veterinarian or call KDA toll-free at 833-765-2006. Or email us at KDA.HPAI@ks.gov and we will call you back.

    Updated information about highly pathogenic avian influenza in the U.S. can be found here: USDA HPAI web page.

      EPIDEMIOLOGICAL COMMENTS
      The USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), in conjunction with State Animal Health and Wildlife Officials, are conducting comprehensive epidemiological investigations and enhanced surveillance in response to the HPAI H5N1 related events. Affected population counts are based on estimated inventories from the date the outbreak was first reported to the World Organisation for Animal Health. HPAI events are now closed and control areas have been released in the following States: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin. These States have not had any recent HPAI events and have demonstrated: • Required surveillance in the State and control areas has been completed with negative results for HPAI. As a precaution, additional enhanced surveillance may continue in the State and area. • Depopulation of infected premises has been completed and appropriate disposal was implemented or completed. • Cleaning and disinfection of the infected premises has been completed (including, but not limited to, outside areas of premises, equipment, trucks, and other fomites). Note (26/10/2022): After reassessment by field investigators, outbreak OB_107904 has been designated as non-poultry premises and subsequently removed from this event.
