        No new NM dairy cow avian flu cases confirmed in weeks

        It’s still unknown how many cows and poultry have been affected.

        BY: DANIELLE PROKOP - MAY 15, 2024 12:59 PM

        ...
        New Mexico is still counting eight herds with confirmed positives of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza, all in Curry County, and no presumptive positive cases, state agriculture officials said Monday.

        “We do not have exact numbers of cows affected in each herd, but the average has been about 10%,” state veterinarian Samantha Uhrig said in a written response to questions.

        The state is unaware of any cow deaths that are directly attributed to avian flu, she added.

        Uhrig said the state will not name infected dairies and will only identify them at the county level.
        ...
        Despite surrounding states recording additional herds infected with avian flu in recent weeks, there’s no change for New Mexico dairy herds.

        State officials not planning to test wastewater in New Mexico for avian flu
        ...

        New Mexico health officials have no plans to implement further wastewater testing for H5N1, said State Public Health Veterinarian Erin Phipps with the Department of Health.

        New Mexico has not been asked to be involved in any wastewater-testing plans for avian flu at this point, Phipps said, “although I am aware of many conversations happening amongst many different entities about wastewater.”
        ...

        Experts around the country have called on officials to use wastewater testing for the avian influenza H5N1, New Mexico has no plans to do so.
