There has been no shows cancelled because of the following information...This is an isolated incident and is a virus that has been monitored for years. sms
The affected flock has been quarantined and will not be sending poultry to the Munroe exhibition. We do not know the source of infection for the first flock in WA. This first flock is closed and should have good biosecurity. If you do take birds to the show, please ensure that you place these in separate housing for 30 days after returning from the show and continue to practice good biosecurity.
Subject: Outbreak Alert: very virulent Infectious Bursal Disease virus confirmed in 6 week old pullets, Thurston County
This outbreak alert has been sent to present and former NPIP producers to confirm the diagnosis of very virulent Infectious Bursal Disease virus in Washington State .
WSDA received laboratory confirmation of vvIBDV (PCR and molecular sequencing), in an outbreak affecting 6 week old chickens in Thurston County. I recommend enhanced biosecurity to reduce the risk of infectious disease transmission. This is the first time vvIBDV has been diagnosed in Washington State. We do not know the source of this outbreak in Washington. In California, Dr. Maurice Pitesky (University of California, Davis, Cooperative Extension poultry specialist) has reported that transmission has been linked to exhibition poultry purchased from Craig's list. Information on vvIBDV can be found at the California CVMA and WSU AHFS lab facebook web sites below.
