fluenza antibodies during routine
egg sampling conducted as a part

August 31, with one of the two
flocks located in Willow Street, and
a flock located in Paradise was
destroyed on September 5. The
final depopulations concluded this

According to Pa. Poultry
Federation spokesman, Tim
Allwein, the owners of all four of
the recently depopulated flocks
will receive federal indemnity,
although the Pa. Department of
Agriculture has not yet ap
propriated the additional funding
needed for cleaning and disin

“They’ve assured us that money
will be available,’’Allwein said,
“although the rate may be slightly
lower than the C&D rate for high
path flocks.”
The recent discovery of the four
sero-positive flocks has raised
questions within the poultry in
