USDA: Bird Flu Strikes Key Dutch Poultry Region

The Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature, and Food Quality has detected avian influenza at commercial poultry farms in the Netherlands 37 times since October.

The information comes from an April 22 report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS)/Global Agriculture Information Network.

One of the most recent findings was in Barneveld, considered the poultry capital of the country.

Both the global Covid-19 crisis and local avian influenza outbreaks have had a negative effect on Dutch exports.
