Following a complaint, an official inspection took place on a farm near Petőfiszállás, Bács-Kiskun County. During the inspection, 1,500 broiler chickens kept without a license were found at the farm. The animal keeper could not prove the origin of the animals with any documents, he did not keep farm records, and the large animal farm did not have the structural elements and tools essential for epidemic prevention.

Illegal stocks threaten the security of the sector

In view of the unknown origin and health status of the broiler chickens, the Bács-Kiskun County Government Office ordered traffic restrictions on the farm in addition to liquidating the stock. At the same time, the authority files a report due to a violation of epidemiological regulations. Nébih draws the attention of livestock keepers to the fact that illegal flocks can pose a significant threat to the entire sector in terms of the spread of the bird flu virus, while preventing the epidemic is in the common interest of all concerned. The danger of the virus requires constant readiness from all poultry farmers, because the prevention of another epidemic is only possible by full, persistent and collective compliance with the epidemic prevention regulations.
