The Avian Flu Disaster: A Special "Choices" Magazine Theme Online Today
Date:6/3/2016

While it may not be in the headlines as much as in previous years, the Avian Flu (Bird Flu) is still a major threat worldwide – especially in the agriculture industry.

Four countries are dealing with a massive outbreak right now. In the United States the disease led to the plummeting price of eggs and the destruction of millions of chickens and turkeys in 2015, which was called the “worst avian health disaster in U.S. history.”

The impact of the disaster on farmers and the industry as a whole is still being felt. It is the topic of a special theme of Choices magazine: “Economic Consequences of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza.”

  • “Local Economies and Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza” by Kamina K. Johnson
  • “Proactive Risk Assessments to Improve Business Continuity” by Jada M. Thompson
  • “The Impact of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza on Table Egg Prices” by Wei Huang
  • “Regionalization of the 2014 and 2015 Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Outbreaks” by Ann Hillberg Seitzinger
  • “Government Spending to Control Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza” by Ann Hillberg Seitzinger

You can read all five articles online at choicesmagazine.org, and to schedule an interview with any of the authors, please contact Jay Saunders in the AAEA Business Office.
