Clean-up efforts at the Wisconsin avian flu site continue

Wisconsin and federal officials say there are no new highly pathogenic cases of bird flu in Wisconsin, but the cleanup continues.

dr Darlene Konkle is the state vet. She says, “Disposal for the Rock County herd has been completed and disposal by composting for the Jefferson County herd is underway.”

Konkle says it could be 60 to 80 days before Cold Springs Egg Farm near Palmyra, Wisconsin, can start backfilling the barns. She says a site disinfection step and a virus inactivation step, which may involve heat, must be done first, along with more environmental sampling.

Composting of 2.7 million carcasses at Cold Spring Egg Farm continues, according to Konkle. “We are planning another week of activities there to move compost material from the infected site to the compost site.”

According to Konkle, all commercial poultry farms in Wisconsin have increased biosecurity and surveillance efforts to try to prevent the spread of bird flu.
