The rearing obligation for poultry will be lifted in the United Kingdom on Monday 2 may. This was recently announced by the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA), which deals with this.
In the United Kingdom (UK), a pitching obligation has been in place since November 29. Since then, more than 200 new outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza have occurred. Last week, another outbreak occurred on a poultry farm in the United Kingdom.
Christine Middlemiss, the head of Veterinary Affairs in the UK, previously spoke of the most serious bird flu outbreak ever to occur in the UK. The APHA points out that the strict hygiene measures remain mandatory. Poultry farmers who intend to give their chickens free rein must take the necessary measures so that they comply with strict hygiene measures.
