Dairy cows

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is now including livestock resources on its webpages about highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI).

This response comes after the United States Department of Agriculture has confirmed cases of bird flu in multiple dairy herds in the country.

As of April 23, herds in eight states have tested positive for avian flu.
“Affected cows are showing clinical signs that include a decrease in milk production or feed consumption and thicker consistency milk,” the CFIA says on its webpage. “The animals appear to recover after a period of illness.”
