Two biosecurity advisories remain in effect.

DATE: May 30, June 6

LOCATIONS: Lanark and Norfolk

DETAILS: On May 30, 2019, OMAFRA alerted FBCC that a small, non-commercial chicken flock in Lanark County has tested positive for Infectious Laryngotracheitis (ILT). A biosecurity advisory area was established north of Highway 7. Commercial poultry farmers, small flock growers and service providers in this area were advised to enhance biosecurity.

On June 6, 2019 a commercial broiler chicken farmer in the eastern part of Norfolk County notified the Chicken Farmers of Ontario (CFO) of a high mortality disease situation in part of his flock. Subsequent testing confirmed Infectious Laryngotracheitis (ILT). The FBCC established a Biosecurity Advisory Area in a 10 km area east of Simcoe in Norfolk Country.

CFO staff are providing site support on behalf of FBCC. FBCC has made ILT response protocols available to the veterinarian and farmer to assist with farm bio-containment efforts as well as flock slaughter, cleaning and disinfection, barn heating, disposal, vaccination, and appropriate down-time prior to re-stocking.
