Ohio Department of Ag bans ALL poultry shows in Ohio

June 2, 2015 - Columbus, Ohio - In a recent press release from the Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) the state of Ohio has banned ALL poultry shows in Ohio until January 2016 due to the Avian Influenza outbreak in other states.  This is a proactive approach to help protect Ohio's poultry industry which is one of the largest Ag industries in the Buckeye state.  The American Buckeye Club supports the ODA's position and we encourage our members to be cautious and pay strict attention to their own bio-security measures with respect to their Buckeye flocks.  Below is a copy of the letter releases at noon on June 2, 2015 with details around the proposed ban.
