HPAI Information from UC Davis

Dear dairy producer and allied industry,

Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) has been recently detected in dairy herds across multiple states, including Texas, Kansas, Michigan, New Mexico, Idaho, Ohio, North Carolina, and South Dakota.

To help disseminate crucial information, the UC Davis and UC ANR have collaborated to create a comprehensive factsheet available in both English and Spanish. This resource provides essential insights based on the latest data.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to your County Dairy Advisor. Our dedicated team is here to support you and will gladly leverage our network of specialists to address any inquiries you may have.
