How HPAI is still threatening the U.S. poultry industry

Avian Influenza is still a threat to the U.S. poultry industry.

A recent report from CoBank’s Knowledge Exchange revealed that poultry product values increased substantially this year due to tight supplies and strong consumer demand. HPAI put a further strain on the sector, causing egg and turkey breast prices to reach historic peaks. U.S. poultry exports are on track to reach an all-time record this year, too.

A lead animal protein economist with CoBank says thankfully avian influenza restrictions have relaxed around the world, but that could change especially with the threat of resurgence this fall.
