News and Information / Re: Tennessee Dept of Ag confirms case of AI
« Last post by Don on Today at 08:22:05 AM »
The one AI event in Pickens County is about three hours from the cluster of other events along the TN and AL border, along the Miss border.  I hope that soon enough with the weather warming it will become a mute point.  Then we will see how the respective states respond this summer.

News and Information / Re: 2017 Ameraucana Breeders Club Handbook

The first version of the 2017 ABC Handbook has gone to the Board for review, minus ads, title page, and table of contents.  I will be working on those while the rest of the Board is reviewing the articles, as they are laid out now.

I'm hoping we can get this to the printers this week!

If you have placed an ad and not yet paid for it, I will be sending out invoices via Paypal this week.  If you would prefer a QuickBooks invoice via email, let me know.

Thank you, everyone, that has made this Handbook a possibility.  We're almost to the finish line.

Any new reports that anyone has seen today?

Just saw this posted on our local Mid TN thread... I haven't looked it up to verify yet, but...



A case of low pathogen H7/N9 AI was confirmed at 5:45 tonight at a Commercial farm in Christian Co. KY. They have placed a movement ban on KY poultry beginning Monday morning until further notice.

Edited to add: This was passed on from a KY state Ag official, it has not been released to the public yet...

Very welcome, Don...

(Thanks Jen.  That's one of the rumors that I've heard, that they are planning to ban swaps on Monday.
I hear rumors of KY and WI can't find official confirmation yet.)

I contacted our SC State NPIP Coordinator and asked if we could still sell to GA buyers.  As long as you are NPIP/AI clean, you can.

That's for SC - I don't know about NC.
