Avian influenza in the United States is expanding - pork will benefit Turkey meat deficiency

Avian influenza (bird flu virus) in the United States: 46,24 million dead animals

The epidemically is spreading bird flu H5 N2 in the United States since 1 Jan 2015 more than 46 million dead animals asked. In 1. Line with only 37.3 million animals the laying hens are affected.  Only with distance follow turkeys with losses of 7.1 million shares. Little or no not chicken fattening Holdings have been captured so far.

The disease has its focus in Iowa, where alone already 29 million animals have been infected and killed. This corresponds to about half of the stock of approximately 58.2 million In the neighboring state of Nebraska fell from 9.4 million laying hens 3.8 million animals of plague victims. Another 3.8 million animals are in Minnesota have been killed the total here is 11.3 million units.

In total are in the United States now 37 million laying hens from a total of 259 million animals by the disease has been eradicated.  The biggest boost took place in the period after May 1, 2015.

The consequences are dramatic: the egg prices have doubled. Turkey Breast has risen by 30% in the price.

The further developments remain still unüberschaubar. Initial findings are that the spread of the disease over the Vogelfluglinie along the missisippi must be made by wild birds. Only isolated incidents have occurred in the other centres of the U.S. egg production u.a in California and Wyoming. The animal density is sometimes even greater in these regions.

The finding that the chicken mast with a multiple greater importance by almost not affected of the disease seems to be remains remarkable. A first explanation is that the priorities of the broiler fattening are located in the South-East of the United States away from the Vogelfluglinie. In the face of chicken fattening stalls spread all across the country the Declaration is not sufficient however. If necessary, other factors play an additional role that might have to do with the life of the animals.

Less and expensive Turkey benefit from the similar valuable pieces in pork sales. However, there are also adverse effects in the rest of the meat as a result of the import alert of a number of States, who fear a threat to animals and humans.
