How the Tennessee Department of Agriculture is working to keep poultry safe at the state fair

The Tennessee Department of Agriculture is making sure the only thing poultry bring home from the state fair is a blue ribbon!

The State Veterinarian and the Animal Health Division will be at the Tennessee State Fair to examine and test poultry arriving for competition and exhibition. This is an effort to prevent the spread of avian influenza and pullorum.

The staff is also raising awareness of best biosecurity practices.
