Grassley surprised by HPAI detection in dairy cattle

SHARE NOW

U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley says the recent detection of highly pathogenic avian influenza in dairy cattle took the ag industry by surprise.

“After eight years of avian flu being a bird situation with turkeys and chickens, I guess I didn’t know that it affected any other animals,” he said Thursday.

According to USDA, the virus was confirmed on some dairy cattle operations in Texas and Kansas.

Grassley tells Brownfield he’s confident state departments of agriculture can handle the issue.
