HPAI reported South Dakota turkeys, Iowa cases confirmed

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) confirmed new HPAI cases in Beadle, Clark and Hanson, South Dakota. All three of the reported cases impacted commercial turkey farms.

The Beadle, Clark and Hanson confirmations came on October 25 and involved 51,100, 31,100 and 13,400 turkeys, respectively.

For two of the South Dakota counties, Clark and Hanson, this is the first case of HPAI confirmed in 2023. In Beadle County, the last reported HPAI case in commercial poultry was on April 19, 2023. In total, South Dakota has now reported a total of nine commercial flocks impacted in 2023.
