Animal agriculture throughout Pennsylvania focus is on keeping diseases off their farms in order to protect the food supply. At this time, PA Poultry Farmers are concerned about High Path Avian Influenza (HPAI). Trucking companies operating in PA can play a role in protecting the food supply. Any truck going on to a farm and/or agribusiness is asked to be mindful of the farms biosecurity protocols and ensure the truck tires are cleaned and disinfected; drivers where protective shoe covering; drop-off deliveries at alternative locations (if feasible). This disease is very easily spread and is currently impacting birds all around the Commonwealth. HPAI can impact all birds ranging from wild birds, commercial production poultry barns, small flock-backyard birds. There is no treatment to cure birds impacted with HPAI.
