  2. Avian Influenza Update

    Apr. 07, 2022

    We have been receiving many questions about poultry projects for the fair. At this time, we are operating as normal, and no changes have been made. It is hoped that enhanced biosecurity practices will help prevent the spread. However, if Avian Influenza (HPAI) should spread, decisions could be made by the Ohio Department of Agriculture to safeguard Ohio's sizable poultry industry. Our advice to 4-H families is to be sure they follow biosecurity best practices, and consider enrolling in additional projects if they are only enrolled in poultry projects.
