But FBCC still emphasizes ongoing need for vigilance in face of avian influenza recovery efforts.

In a collective announcement on behalf of Ontario’s four feather boards, the Feather Board Command Centre (FBCC) has officially lifted the heightened biosecurity advisory that was imposed on November 29, 2023, in the Township of Lanark Highlands.

While the removal of the advisory signals a positive development in the region, the FBCC emphasizes the ongoing need for vigilance. Poultry farmers, small flock growers, and poultry industry personnel across the province are urged to steadfastly adhere to Heightened Biosecurity Practices (orange cards) as recovery efforts from highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) continue.

The FBCC underscores the importance of immediate action if any signs of health concerns arise within flocks. Farmers are strongly advised to contact both their veterinarian and the board promptly.

For detailed information and to stay informed, the FBCC encourages individuals to visit their website and subscribe to FBCC Disease Alerts. This proactive approach aims to keep stakeholders well-informed about any developments and precautionary measures necessary to maintain the health and safety of Ontario’s poultry industry.
