UK to lift bird flu mitigation measures from 1 April

New Delhi, March 23, 2021: The housing measures which required all poultry keepers to keep their birds inside will be lifted from 1 April, following the risk level to poultry and wild birds in the UK being decreased to medium by the Animal and Plant Health Agency. The measures have been in place since 14 December 2020.

NFU chief poultry adviser Aimee Mahony said: “All poultry keepers have played a crucial role in minimising the threat of Avian Influenza and have therefore contributed to allowing these measures to be lifted according to the reports published in thepoultrysite.com.

“It will be a great relief to farmers with free-range flocks that have had to house their birds for over three months due to these government-imposed measures, and they will be pleased that they can once again give their birds access to the outside range area.
