Doing Better Than 2015: poultry producers are making a comeback from HPAI outbreak
U.S. poultry producers are making a comeback from avian influenza.
They are recovering much faster this go around compared to the 2015 outbreaks. The Iowa Poultry Association says that this is due to the increased speed of getting the virus under control.
The Iowa Egg Council says that the turnaround period now is around three months. Back in 2015, it was closer to nine months before producers were able to populate again.
Industry leaders expect stores to see a rebound in products over the coming weeks.
