I have family in the County. Those in the turkey industry are very concerned.  What are the odds of the same county again?

Avian flus are a real problem for poultry producers. I read about it cropping up somewhere else a couple of days ago but I can't remember where. I think it might have been the UK. The trouble is it spreads really easily in that environment, and the farmer has (literally) all his eggs in one basket, so if he has to cull, he loses everything.
