Large Renville County Chicken Farm Hit by Bird Flu

Two poultry operations in Renville County have been struck by bird flu, including one with over 400,000 chickens.

The Minnesota Board of Animal Health says the farms with presumptive positive test results announced Wednesday included one with 415,000 young chickens that had not started laying eggs, and a turkey farm where the flock size was not immediately available.

The two new cases mark the seventh and eighth in Renville County. They raise the number of Minnesota farms affected to 106 and the total of birds producers have lost to nearly 8.9 million.
