Hanover area on avian flu alert

Poultry farmers in the Hanover area have been put on alert for avian influenza because a flock in the area has experienced high mortality.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has so far not declared it an outbreak, nor has it imposed a 10-kilometre quarantine zone.

Hanover is home to a number of large poultry operations linked to New Life Feed Mills.
