12.11.2016 - 16:06
Kiel - now also the first large-scale operation is affected by the avian influenza in Schleswig-Holstein.
For the first time since the outbreak of the bird flu epidemic this year, it has now hit a large farm animal farm in the municipality of Twedt in Schleswig-Holstein. The high-infected H5N8 virus was detected in a closed chickens plant with 30 000 animals, as Agriculture Minister Robert Habeck (Greens) on Saturday communicated.
All animals must now be killed according to the poultry plague regulation.
