A special Small Backyard Flock program has been established to educate flockowners about biosecurity and management of small flocks. The program is subsidized by the CPHB while we continue to receive special funds for Avian Influenza monitoring. This program only is available to small flocks of 100 or fewer birds. All participating flocks must test for Pullorum-Typhoid and Avian Influenza.
For more information or questions on any part of the NPIP program, please contact Monica Della Maggiore at (209) 576-6355 or by Email.
