H5NI detected in second Iowa dairy herd

H5N1 has been detected in a second Iowa dairy herd.

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship says the case is in northwest Iowa’s Sioux County, and Ag Secretary Mike Naig calls the virus a significant threat to livestock and to the livelihoods of the farmers who care for them.

The first case of avian influenza in an Iowa dairy herd was reported June 5th in neighboring O’Brien County.

Naig says he’s requesting aid for affected dairy and poultry farmers and for USDA to assist in disease research and response.
