Resources for Fairs Canceling Poultry Shows

Many fairs are faced with canceling poultry shows this summer due to the avian influenza (H5N2) outbreak impacting commercial poultry operations and backyard flocks across the U.S. The IAFE will provide information and resources for members for ideas on messaging, education, and use of space on this website and through the members’ Igniter forum. Go to the special Avian Influenza Resource section (you will need to use your member e-mail and password) for the most up-to-date information and resources, including recordings from the IAFE Avian Influenza CyberSeminar sessions held on June 4. Check back frequently for updates as well as watch your e-mail for special announcements (from “news,” the Network Newsletter, or e-announcements).
