The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS) has announced an order cancelling all live bird exhibitions at fairs and other gatherings of birds due to highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). As of today, the IDALS order is until 30 days has passed without a confirmation of a new infection of HPAI in domestic poultry in the state of Iowa. The Iowa State Fair poultry show may still occur as hopefully will county fairs. We will continue to monitor the situation and work closely with IDALS and the Iowa Poultry Association.
