Movement restrictions for poultry events, exhibitions and sales issued in Kansas
In an effort to protect the Kansas poultry industry and to promote stronger bio-security practices throughout the state, Kansas Department of Agriculture Division of Animal Health has issued a stop movement order, signed by Secretary of Agriculture Jackie McClaskey, targeting Kansas poultry and live birds, effectively cancelling all poultry-related shows and events through calendar year 2015. This includes all types of poultry activities where birds from different flocks are co-mingled.
