sylvania’s poultry industry, again
defied the USDA quarantine
boundry and claimed a 400,000
layer hen flock in Lebanon County.
Located .outside the quarantine
zone in northern Lebanon County,
the 400,000 bird flock is the largest
flock to date diagnosed with the
avian virus. Positive diagnosis was
confirmed Tuesday on the flock
which is north of Fredericksburg.
Eradication of the flock began
Wednesday with approximately
80,000 birds depopulated. An ad
ditional 80,000 were to be
slaughtered Thursday, according
to task force spokesman Chuck
Williams said it is not certain if
the entire flock will be depopulated
because the deadly disease in
fected only two of the six houses on
the farm. “We’re making an effort
to contain the disease within those
two houses,” he said.
Since the eradication program
began in November, task force
policy has been to kill all the birds
located on an infected premise.
In addition to this flock, three

number of flocks to 271,
representing 11.1 million birds. As
of Thursday, 268 flocks,
representing 10.5 million birds,
Williams said that 107 poultry
premises have been approved for
cleaning and disinfecting. Of these,
30 have received permits to
repopulate their houses.
The Pennsylvania Poultry
Federation announced this week
that all egg packers shipping eggs
to other states must have par
ticipated in the poultry watch
program for at least two weeks
prior to shipping.
This is a new policy which will go
into effect March 1,1984, said Tim
Allwein, spokesman for the
Federation. “This gives
poultrymen adequate time to get
their flock on the program if not so
already,” he said.
By entering the program now,
Allwein said poultrymen will aviod

service to out-of-state customers.

Shirk noted that stray voltage
can be a problem that leads to
lowered milk production and
mastitis. While humans can not
feel an electrical charge below six
volts, cows are sensitive to as little
as half a volt of electricity.
