Heightened biosecurity practices remain crucial amid avian influenza recovery efforts.

The Feather Board Command Centre (FBCC) has officially lifted the Infectious Laryngotracheitis (ILT) biosecurity advisory for the City of Hamilton, initially put in place on April 24, 2024. The advisory’s removal comes after significant containment and mitigation efforts.

While the ILT advisory has ended, FBCC stresses the importance of continued vigilance among poultry farmers, small flock growers, and poultry industry personnel across Ontario. All stakeholders are urged to adhere to Heightened Biosecurity Practices, especially as recovery from the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) continues.

Any signs of health issues in poultry flocks should be promptly reported to veterinarians and respective boards. For further information and to receive ongoing disease alerts, visit the FBCC website.
