No recent positive cases of H5N1 in KS or MO

While H5N1 continues to spread across several states there hasn’t been a recent positive case reported in Missouri or Kansas.

There haven’t been any reported cases of H5N1 or Influenza A in Missouri livestock so far this year. Ag Director Chris Chinn says she attributes that to two things: good biosecurity and “Missouri isn’t a state where we import a lot of our dairy heifers. In Missouri, we’ve always had the regulation in place where if you have a dairy heifer, you had to have a health certificate from a certified veterinarian and that’s still the case today.”

USDA says the last positive case for H5N1 in Kansas was confirmed in mid-April.
