They care about the quality and safety of the products that feed their own families, their local communities, and communities across the country. Our eggs and poultry products are safe, economical, and wholesome sources of protein.

PULLORUM TYPHOID TESTING WAIVER

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY Indiana will waive the Salmonella pullorum and Salmonella typhoid (P-T) testing requirement during the 2019 County Fair Season, through August 31, 2019.

The exception to this waiver is that out-of-state poultry that are NOT from an NPIP Pullorum-Typhoid clean flock must be P-T tested.  All poultry coming into Indiana must either be from an NPIP certified Pullorum-Typhoid clean flock utilizing a completed VS, 9-3 form or are required to prove that they have been P-T tested prior to arrival in Indiana and within 90 days of exhibition.

Should P-T antigen become widely available through various poultry supply retailers before August 31, we will reexamine this waiver.

USPOULTRY's 360-Degree Virtual Reality Turkey Farm Video Tour

Visit a turkey farm without even stepping outside! The U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) recently released a 360° virtual reality video giving viewers an inside look at how turkeys are raised, and the careful measures farmers take as they grow. The virtual reality video allows a panoramic view of the farm by using arrows to look up, down, side-to-side, front and back from the original starting point. This is a great resource for the public to see just how turkey operations function and the meticulous care that goes into growing healthy birds.

INDIANA'S FREE FLOCK HEALTH TEST PROGRAM

ISPA offers a FREE flock evaluation program.  The voluntary testing program, referred to as Indiana's Test Twelve (T-12) Program, monitors Avian Influenza through a simple antibody test from your hens' eggs.  The T-12 test is specifically designed for chickens, not other types of poultry.  Results may aid is assessing the health status of the birds, but should not be used as a diagnostic test.  To participate fill out the online form below.  When you receive the kit, collect 12 eggs and return them to the ISPA in our postage paid package.  Please note, this is a monitoring test only, the results are for the poultry owners benefit and cannot be used to certify egg quality or as a replacement to poultry health papers.  Due to the nature of the T-12 test, the ISPA cannot predict a specific date for the results.
