Poultry Farms in Jeollanamdo Suffered Great Loss as a Result of AI

올해 전남 오리농가, 276만마리 살처분

Poultry Farms in Jeollanamdo Suffered Great Loss as a Result of AI

 

A total of 27.6 million poultries were reportedly slaughtered as a result of the avian influenza that broke out this year.

 

Accumulated damages marked 37.3 billion won, with Yeongam district having suffered the greatest damage at 47 poultries farms, followed by Naju at 37 farms.

 

The highly pathogenic avian influenza virus broke out in a total of 10 regions out of 22 cities and districts in Jeollanamdo, including Suncheon, Muam, Haenam, and Gangjin.

 

Duck farms were hit the hardest, as the virus was type H5N8, which is commonly found mostly among ducks.

 

In response, Jeollanamdo requested the national government to examine effective vaccination measures to prevent further damage caused by the AI virus and restrict farms that are highly vulnerable to the virus from farming from May through October.
