Extension service offices small flock biosecurity seminars

Extension poultry and veterinary specialists for the University Of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture will be offering seminars on biosecurity for backyard flocks.

The small flock seminars will be held in Sebastian, Yell and Montgomery counties. The counties border Scott County, where state livestock officials are investigating the finding of a low pathogenic strain of avian influenza.

“It is important that small flock owners review the techniques for preventing the spread of any disease through their birds,” said Dustan Clark, Extension veterinarian. “These seminars are a good opportunity to evaluate the biosecurity of hobby flocks.”

The seminars will also touch on Avian Influenza and other poultry diseases. There is no charge to attend.

The schedule is:

Greenwood—July 8, 6 p.m. at the Sebastian Co. Fairgrounds in Greenwood, 479-484-7737.

Mount Ida—July 9, 6 p.m. at the Lake Ouachita Baptist Church (3586 Hwy 270 East) Mount Ida, 870-867-2311.

Danville—July 11, 6 p.m. at the Yell County Extension Office (1002 East 8th St.) Danville, Ark., 479-495-2216.

A second round of seminars is also being planned, with dates and locations to be announced.

If producers have poultry on their farm that are sick and/or dying, see any unusual signs or have questions concerning Avian Influenza, they should contact their local county agent, veterinarian, or livestock inspector, the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service poultry veterinarian (479-957-4245) or the Arkansas State Veterinarians office (501-907-2400).
