The USDA has confirmed a second case of highly pathogenic avian influenza in Lincoln Country, Tennessee, in a commercial breeder flock less than two miles from where the disease was detected earlier this month. The first case of HPAI was confirmed in a commercial poultry flock of 73,500.
Our second State House day was another resounding success. More than 25 members attended. We started at 8 am with coffee and pastries in the cafeteria, speaking with our various legislators. At 9 am we went to House Agriculture and Forestry to listen to a discussion of a bill, on where municipal laws and Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets oversight intersects.
From feeding our people to supplying resources and impacting the economy, agriculture and its producers fuel our communities and help many individuals find their place and purpose, whether it’s on the farm or along the food supply chain.
Due to the amount of interest expressed by Vermont farmers Vermont Farm Bureau will be hosting an Agritourism Workshop on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 from 9:00 to 2:00 pm at the Eagles Club, 1233 Shelburne Rd, South Burlington, Vermont.
