Ca Has A Handle On Bird Flu According To Ag Secretary
Sacramento, CA — Experience fighting another poultry disease prepares California officials for any possible outbreaks of avian flu on poultry farms.
Speaking at a Flu Summit Thursday, the state Food and Agriculture Secretary said agencies test more than 100,000 birds each year.
He said the agencies have maintained bird-health policies established during an earlier outbreak of exotic Newcastle disease among chickens.
