Bird Flu Confirmed in Cherokee and Sac Counties

Positive cases of bird flu were confirmed on Tuesday in both Cherokee and Sac Counties.

According to the USDA and Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, the affected sites are both commercial turkey flocks. A positive case was confirmed in a Buena Vista County turkey flock late last week.

There have now been seven cases of bird flu in the state this fall, after 19 flocks were infected in Iowa earlier in the year.
